Mission Statement

Adventures For The Cure (AFC) is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization, USA Cycling Club, and USA Triathlon Club that exists to empower people to use what they love to raise money and awareness for charitable causes that are important to them. AFC focuses on using a love of cycling to accomplish this task, but we believe that any gift or talent can be used to help others and to make a positive change in the world and we fully encourage others to do so!

In particular, AFC frequently focuses on helping children with diabetes through the Extreme Weekend For Children With Diabetes Camp as well as Kupenda for the Children, an organization that helps children with disabilities in Kenya. Through all of our efforts, we hope to inspire others to live healthy lifestyles and to adventure beyond their perceived limits, because ANYTH!NG Is Possible
