We (Tom, Roey, Eran and Luca) proudly announce that tomorrow we are starting THE LAST WEEK OF RIDING ACROSS THE USA!!! We can not believe it’s almost over! The last period has been the most intense so far, filled with events, experiences, and people. Let us try to summarize our past week in Washington, DC, and Philadelphia, PA. Here we go :)
Getting to Washington DC was specially exciting for us – we started out by having a bike ride with members of the local community, at the same time the Israeli Channel 10 is making a major news report about us, continued by having an incredible event at the embassy where we met the Israeli ambassador to the United States, and ended with an event with the Hillel of George Washington University. So many incredible people helped us make it all happen that we don’t even know how to thank them! We do want to mention our host family, the Heidemans, who showed us great support, and a really good time. And of course, everybody working in the embassy, who made this extremely meaningful event happen – thank you! We can not express how much it meant for us!
Our next destination was Philly, where we had events with Hillel in PENN, (University of Pennsylvania), in the Perleman Jewish day school, and where we welcomed someone very special: Dror Malo works at Microsoft Israel, one of our biggest supporters, where he took the biggest price of an auction – a week with BFF! So here he is, he joined us for the last week of the bike ride on our way to New York, which is really exciting for us! Our fantastic host, Ilana took us around in Philadelphia, and we had a lot of fun on the stairs of Rocky together with Dror, so get ready for awesome photos on our facebook page!
To summarize this past week, the question that we received the most was - are you gonna do it again? Well we are still here, in the present, and are trying to “digest” all that’s going on. But we had to realize, that the amount of seeds we are planting, funds, and awareness that we are raising for cancer research, and the amount of people we move and touch with what we are doing – it has all become bigger than us, bigger than we could ever imagine, and there is no stop. So dear readers, get ready…Bike For the Fight is finishing this journey in a week, but New York is not going to be our last destination.
