Richmond 2015, the organizer of the 2015 UCI Road World Championships, has announced that Henrico-based ChildFund International will join its team of partners as the “Official Charity of Choice” for the nine-day cycling event to be held in Richmond this September. As part of the partnership, the two organizations will co-promote the 10-Bike Challenge, a local offshoot of ChildFund’s Dream Bike program, an initiative that raises money to purchase bicycles for girls in 12 countries who need them to get to and from school. Local businesses are each being asked to participate in the 10-Bike Challenge by raising $1,000, enough to pay for 10 bikes. The goal of the campaign is to raise enough funds to pay for 3,400 bicycles. Tredegar, a global manufacturer of plastic films and aluminum extrusions in Richmond, is helping kick off the campaign with a $25,000 grant.
