Ride for World Health: Alumni Involvement 


OSU medical students are gearing up for the annual Ride for World Health cross-country pedal-powered lecture series and we'd love for alumni to be involved!

Ride for World Health is a non-profit organization started by OSU medical students founded on the principles of education, advocacy, and fundraising. Our mission is to educate and advocate for local and global health, culminating in an annual bicycle ride from San Diego to Washington D.C. during which we stop in towns along the way to give lectures about health topics and we fundraise for charities whose work reflects our mission. Our ride this year will start March 25 in San Diego and will end May 18 in D.C. It would be great to have alumni involved by joining our team during the ride, being involved in lecture events close to you, talking with the team over dinner or hosting riders along the route, or offering your support. For more information about the organization or how to get involved visit www.r4wh.org or contact Missy Mauntel, COO 2016 at melissa.mauntel@osumc.edu.

 About Us: 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 and based on the principles of Education, Advocacy, and Fundraising. The Ride itself is an annual full-support pedal-powered journey bringing global and local health issues to classrooms and lecture halls in small towns and big cities across America.
