On May 21st, I will bike ride 150 miles from Manhattan to Montauk to raise money for the third annual CLEAN HANDS FOR HAITI program organized by A&M Sports Academy's founders, Ray Abellard & Andre Murray.  

Please sponsor my ride and donate to this worthy cause.

Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the Americas and the extreme poverty adversely affects every stage of life, from childhood malnutrition to shortened life expectancy.   Life is harsh and opportunities are few, with very high rates of illiteracy and unemployment.   

From May 22-29, A&M Sports Academy will again “give back” to the Haitian community in the Port-Au-Prince area, by bringing food, clothing, footwear, school supplies, athletic equipment and much more to this impoverished community.  A&M will run its daily basketball clinics and mentor the kids in addition to teaching them basketball skills.  

A&M will again be accompanied by the CitiDental Group, providing free dental examinations and dental care.    

Another generous supporter, William David Tobin of Mission Capital, is donating 22 laptop computers for A&M's Community Center, where 19 students sponsored by A&M this year will have a second home.  A generator is now needed to supply regular electricity to the facility, and other necessary expenses need funding.  
This year A&M will also be rebuilding the home of one of its students, which was destroyed in the devasting earthquake of January 12, 2010.
A&M Sports Academy is a 501(c)(3) organization and your donations are tax deductible. 

Sponsor my ride and give hope to Haiti.  Please consider donating $1 a mile or more.  Any donation is greatly appreciated.  Your support will mean a lot to me and I will ride my butt off for you!

Thank you and ride on,
David Wander
