Change A Life, Give a Bike 4 Nepal.

Throughout the month of May, Wheels 4 Life will be putting all donations not already allocated to a specific fundraiser, to bikes for the devastated country of Nepal. 

Having been desimated by a 7.9 magnitude earthquake, with over 6,600 people confirmed dead and 14,000 casualties, it is hard to even begin to imagine the suffering of the people. This suffering will only continue and for too long. With millions of men, women and children now homeless, the outbreak of diseases, lack of clean water and sanitation and the need for medical attention; we know one thing for sure, Nepal needs bicycles.

$150.00 will buy a bicycle. We have already worked with Nepal in the past and have a project leader on the ground. We can ensure that every bike gets to the right people. Healthcare workers will be able to travel farther thus treating more people. Water can be transported to ...

Team Wheels 4 Life/Audi Racing Team 2015

Team Wheels4Life/Audi 2015
2014 was another successful year for Team Wheels4Life, and once again we exceeded our goals of raising awareness and funds for the charity Wheels4Life. Team W4L members represented the charity well by participating in races, events, and group rides throughout the year, and the team was particularly successful at the Over The hump race series Elite Masters class where 5 of the top 10 points leaders were Team W4L members. In addition, Team W4L racers were on the podium 13 times in the Kenda/US Cup mountain bike series, and in fact, the overall series champion was a Team W4L racer.  But, most importantly, Team W4L’s success at the races was surpassed by its success in raising funds for the charity. Through our sponsor partners and fundraising activities, over $10,000 was provided to Wheels 4 Life which directed the funds to the ARUWE organization in Uganda and enabled the purchase of 100 bikes.  These bicycles ...
