In 2013 Day of Champions raised an incredible £216,249 for Riders for Health, thanks to the generosity of Rider’s supporters. The money raised helps Riders for Health ensure health workers in Africa have access to reliable, well maintained motorcycles and ambulances so that they can continue to deliver life-saving health care to 14 million people.
Andrea Coleman, CEO and co-founder of Riders for Health said, ‘Day of Champions is always a highlight of the year for us. It’s incredible to see thousands of motorcycle fans coming together to ensure health workers across Africa can continue to deliver health care to rural communities. We would like to thank Silverstone, MotoGP and all of the race teams and riders for their support of this amazing event.’
