WELCOME TO RESCUE PROJECT
A collective not-for-profit effort to support animal rescue through the community of athletes and adventurers all over the world.
Our mission is to promote animal adoption and rescue awareness through community and sport. No matter where you live, adventure, train, or compete, you can be a part of Rescue Project's mission to save lives by encouraging animal fostering and adoption.
We believe in the power of social media to help save lives. We believe in saying yes. Say yes to something; whether it's adopting, fostering, volunteering, donating, and/or sharing. We believe in taking responsibility and never abandoning or turning your back on an animal in need.
We are a voice for those who cannot speak up.
RESCUE PROJECT RACING TEAM
|OUR STORY||DIFFERENT APPROACH TO RACING||BUILDING COMMUNITY|
|As longtime advocates for rescue animals,Rescue Project Racing is a natural outgrowth from the pairing of dogs and bikes. The team is formed based on the ethos that cycling and bike racing could be about more than results. The team is comprised of cyclists ranging from the Washington, DC region to the Triangle of North Carolina with a focus on community engagement.||In contrast to many other amateur cycling teams, Rescue Project Racing focuses on becoming an integral part of the cycling community as a first step with volunteerism and community involvement being core drivers of our team members' shared vision. While racing and results are a part of this team, we choose to seek partnerships within our communities that help raise awareness to the overarching goal of animal rescue and welfare. Through our racing, group rides and volunteerism, we seek to save them all.||Our team has been built as a composition of individuals that represent this ethos and who seek to continue collaborating in concerted efforts to further our team vision. Through volunteering at shelters, participating in community events and an overall attitude of compassion and understanding, our team members continue to raise awareness and directly help those in need. Rescue Project Racing has sought partnerships with like-minded companies (such as Plant Athletic) to create a unified and focused team atmosphere.|
