Pump For Peace: Athletes and Musicians on a Mission For a Better World
#pumpforpeace is a global initiative building pump tracks in underprivileged communities, focused on making cycling and action sports more accessible than ever before. No matter your race, gender or religion, cycling has the power to unite communities around the world, #pumpforpeace was founded on this belief and that by making the sport more accessible we can help promote a more tolerant future.
Velosolutions have been building pump tracks around the world for over a decade and throughout that time they have witnessed the ability pump tracks have to transform communities and lives by making cycling more accessible. Whilst, of course they are amazing fun for all, pump tracks have the power to unite communities, instill passion, make cycling more accessible and promote a healthy and active lifestyle. #pumpforpeace believes this should not be confined to only the most progressive and wealthy communities, everyone should be entitled to the same opportunities in life.
With the philosophy behind #pumpforpeace embraced by so many around the world, Velsosolutions turned to their friends in the music industry to help bring their vision to life. Both cycling and music have the power to unite people around the world and combining forces would help to reach more people than ever imagined. By working with both local and international musicians it became possible to host benefit concerts that would raise money to fund the community pump track builds. And with that #pumpforpeace was born – Athletes and Musicians on a mission for a better world.
As #pumpforpeace rolls out we invite athletes and musicians to join our mission and grab a shovel or take to the stage.
The #pumpforpeace team have personally experienced the power that cycling, sport, and music has had in their own lives, they have seen first-hand how it has transformed the lives of many around the world and believe in the positive impact it can have on so many more. No matter your race, gender or religion we want to promote equal opportunities for all. @velosolutions
