Universidad Ana G. Méndez event students created the UAGM Bike Tour in 2013. This cycling event was created with the idea of helping other peer students to achieve their academic goals through Universidad Ana G. Méndez Scholarship Fund. One hundred percent (100%) of the funds raised with the event go directly to help students that do not have the financial means to complete their education. It also provides some opportunities for low-income students to engage in extracurricular experiences, such as study-abroad or internship programs, that would otherwise be completely out of their reach.
The UAGM Bike Tour is an official event of Universidad Ana G. Méndez (UAGM) . It is produced entirely by students in the Event and Conventions Program as part of their final academic experience. As their final course the UAGM Bike Tour help students to proof their skills by producing a real event before graduating. The course is designed to reinforce important professional skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, resiliency, communication, teamwork, and social responsibility, among others.
The UAGM Bike Tour was first held in May 2013 and ever since six groups of students had successfully produced it, raising over $80,000 for UAGM Scholarship Fund. This year, the organizing team, aims to raise $18,000 to generate even more scholarships.
Why GoFund Me? We have decided to add an additional tool to raise funds, so that people that do not want or can't participate in the event, can help.
This cause not only helps students in need to achieve their academic goals but also empowers a group of students by providing them a real-life event management experience before they actually graduate.
The 7th edition of the UAGM Bike Tour will be held May 5, 2019. For more information about the UAGM Bike Tour please visit our website at http://uagmbiketour.org
