Pedego Rides in to Support Wells of Life Run4Water Set for April 22
Pedego Electric Bikes helps provide clean water in Ugandan villages by donating electric bike for drawing prize at annual fundraising event
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., April 17, 2018 — Pedego® Electric Bikes, the Number 1 brand of electric bikes, is once again doing something unusual: using its electric bikes to take part in a charity run. The company is a corporate sponsor of Mission Viejo-based non-profit Wells of Life, an organization building fresh-water wells in villages across Uganda. Pedego donated $12,000 in funds to build two wells, each of which will provide fresh water for 1,000 people for 25 years.
Pedego has also donated a Comfort Cruiser electric bike, valued at $2,295, as an opportunity drawing prize at the upcoming Run4Water 2018 fundraising event. And even more, Pedego is also sponsoring a team in the Run4Life 1K/5K walk/run. The Run4Water event will take place at Laguna Niguel Regional Park on April 22. This is the second year that Pedego is participating in the Run4Water event.
“While we’re building a community of Pedego riders, we’ve always known in our hearts that we’re a part of the larger community too, and it’s our pleasure to support Wells of Life,” said Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo. “It is a pleasure to help where help is needed.”
