In February of this year, a powerful earthquake hit parts of Turkey & Syria killing more than 49,000 people and leaving millions of others in need of basic life necessities including shelter, food and clean water.
Our community members and the folks at Strava wanted to show support to the people affected by this disaster. To raise awareness and help the people of Turkey & Syria, Strava hosted a global challenge. Strava also made a donation to the International Committee of the Red Cross, which provides direct relief to those affected and displaced.
We want to thank each one of you that participated in the Earthquake Relief Challenge and/or donated to the Red Cross’ efforts. More than half a million people participated in the challenge and raised over $85,000.
This challenge may be over, but you can still help the people in Turkey & Syria. Donations to the Red Cross’ efforts’can be madehere. The International Committee of the Red Cross is part of the The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. To learn more, click here.
