A team of Qatari cyclists has started the competitions of the Global Biking Initiative (GBI) Europe, which kicked off in Sweden and will continue for a week, passing through Denmark and ending in Hamburg in Germany, a distance of 750km.
The GBI is worldwide cycling community where 35 countries compete to raise fund for charities. According to statement issued by the Ministry of Culture and Sports yesterday, the Qatari team includes 38 cyclists from Qatar Cycling Center, along with some Qatari travellers and adventurers.
Through their fourth participation, the Qatari youth aim to raise funds to build a QR230,000 school and a QR210,000 hospital to support the return and reintegration of Somali refugees and displaced persons through providing housing, health and education.
These projects are implemented in cooperation with Qatar Charity and in coordination with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
The Qatari team has been named the best fundraising team in the last three years. Qatar’s cyclists have already built a school in Gaza in cooperation with Qatar Charity which handled the initiative and implemented the project. The total cost of the project reached QR4m. The Qatari cyclists expressed great pleasure for participation in the GBI race for the fourth time, stressing that they are determined to continue the race until the end to maintain the title.
