FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Binational Emergency Medical Care Committee will Provide Emergency Medical Support to the Baja Love Ride
San Felipe, Baja California - March 2, 2011 - The 225 mile charity bicycle ride from Rosarito Beach to San Felipe is being sponsored by the Binational Emergency Medical Care Committee (BEMCC), a non-profit organization that provides medical or life-threatening emergency transportation. In Addition, BEMCC will be providing the event with emergency medical support, with the aid and coordination of the Mexican Red Cross that will be escorting the event.
“The event is about having fun and an adventure, and safety is paramount” says organizer John Pack. “We will have the Red Cross of Rosarito, Ensenada, Mexicali and San Felipe as part of the event road team and BEMCC as our emergency medical team.”
The Baja Love Ride is a fundraising event for several orphanages and non-profit children’s organization in the communities the ride passes through. It is a fully supported, 4-day cycling tour with both camping and resort accommodations; a good time for all.
“From muscle soreness and scraps to Emergency evacuation, the riders well-being is a top priority,” Mr. Pack continues, already looking ahead, “we want all these riders to help cycle for the kids next year to Cabo.”
