A collaborative effort, biking and hiking the distance between Wisconsin and Nicaragua!
What makes the Bike/Hike event unique is that not only are people in Wisconsin participating in this statewide event, but our counterparts in Nicaragua are also joining in as well – Working Together, We Make a Difference!
Strangely enough, the way the annual Bike/Hike has been designed since 2007 fits quite well during a pandemic – social distancing is easy while still getting outside and the event can be done in small groups or as individuals, with no specific time or date other than during the whole month of October!
At the end of October, approximate miles are tallied up among all the participants to reach our mileage goal of 2,350 miles, the distance between Wisconsin and Nicaragua. The event is designed with options of organized walks or simply at your own convenience during October.
Together we can reach the goal, we strive to make this event doable for as many people as possible. W/NP is a nonprofit organization that works to provide community and social development projects as well as humanitarian relief to the people of Nicaragua, through a wide variety of ways, mainly through people-to-people connections.
The “I Went the Distance” Bike/Hike to Nicaragua (and Wisconsin!) is an event to raise awareness about Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners of the Americas, Inc. (W/NP) and offer an exciting volunteer experience.
