Pedal Power Generates $88,000
Seven GE employees who are a part of GE Volunteers cycled 330 kilometers through all seven UAE emirates in a five-day challenge that raised AED 160,000 ($44,000) – an amount matched by the GE Foundation, the philanthropic organization of GE, for a total of AED 320,000 ($88,000) to benefit the Al Manzil School for Special Needs in Sharjah. The funds will help meet health and safety costs, including bus transportation and the salary of a full-time onsite nurse.
Held in conjunction with Gulf for Good, the cyclists climbed mountains, crossed deserts and passed through towns – meeting people and witnessing the UAE’s rugged beauty along the way. Watch highlights of their journey here:
