Wheels for the World!


Last year I conquered Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money for the nonprofit I founded, Save One Life. We're starting to corner the market on "adventure fundraisers"!  This year? We conquer the American highways with “Wheels for the World”!

On Monday, June 18, Barry Haarde, a 46-year-old Texan living successfully with hemophilia A, HIV and hepatitis, from Texas, will start a 3,667 miles coast-to-coast bike ride from Astoria, Oregon to Portsmouth, New Hampshire to raise funds for Save One Life. This is the first time someone with hemophilia will bike across America for charity!

Save One Life is a Massachusetts-based international nonprofit that provides direct financial aid to impoverished people with bleeding disorders in developing countries. Founded in 2001, Save One Life provides one-to-one sponsorships for almost 1,000 beneficiaries in ten countries. In addition, it provides funding for camps, scholarships for students and support for outreach to locate patients in rural areas. Barry is one of our dedicated sponsors.

Please help support Barry!

Pledge by the mile or by the state; make a one-time donation or sponsor a child—all proceeds go towards operations and programs to help Save One Life’s mission.  Thanks to Presenting Sponsor Baxter Healthcare International for helping to make this possible!

Barry can be reached at redsaleen97@yahoo.com and is on Facebook. You can sign up on Facebook for the Wheels for the World event, and follow Barry as he checks in daily with his progress! https://www.facebook.com/events/376245012409379/
