Build your Team

The make up of your team will depend on what type of organization you are. If you are a nursing home or elder care facility, you'll need to engage local volunteers to ride the Trishaw. If you're a community organization, an individual or a business, you'll need to partner with a nursing home or elder care facility so that there are older people to take advantage of the bike rides

There are a number of ways to fundraise for your trishaw and again it all depends what type of organization you are. There are 3 practical examples right here of how different Chapters raised the funds to buy their bike.
