Ride for World Health 2015
Ride for World Health is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization founded in 2006 by medical students at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. The Ride itself is an annual full support pedal powered journey bringing global health issues to classrooms and lecture halls in small towns and big cities across America. Along the way, riders raise funds for select beneficiaries who represent their ideals and implement programs that address the very issues they lecture about.
