FORZE Making a Difference
FORZE feels it is our responsibility to give back. Since day one we wanted to make a difference and FORZE believes in helping others around the world.
In early 2014, we met Luke Mysee on a group ride. As he began to share his story and what he and his family had instore for the coming year, we knew we wanted to help him. After closing a business and packing up his family, Luke, co-founder of StopSAM.org, rode his bike 4,170 miles across America with his wife and two boys following in an RV. The purpose of the Cycle Cause trip was to raise awareness and money for Stop SAM to buy treatments for children dying from Severe Acute Malnutrition.
Luke started his ride on June 20th, 2014 in San Diego, CA, rode the entire west coast to Portland, OR before heading east to New York. On September 27th Luke crossed the George Washington bridge completing the journey in 59 riding days. The family then drove back home to California speaking and sharing the story of children who are dying from malnutrition.
His journey was a success! He successfully donated 135,000 packets of RUTF to children in South Sudan. FORZE helped Luke by donating custom cycling socks with his Cycle Cause logo that he was able to sell on his website and raise additional money to buy packets of RUFT. Luke has an amazing story to tell and his passion and dedication to this great cause is far from over. Currently, Luke continues to work to help end Severe Acute Malnutrition and splits his time between Calorie Cloud and StopSam.org. Check out his story at www.cyclecause.com , and visit www.stopsam.org and www.caloriecloud.org to get more information on how you can help.
