A Grand Tour for a Great Cause

Follow Nicolas Chien as he helps people in need, one pedal stroke at a time

Do you remember what you did after you graduated high school? Nicolas Chien surely will, since it involved cycling almost 3,000 miles and climbing almost 100,000 feet as he crossed North America, making his way from New York to California over four weeks while raising money for International Medical Corps and the people we help in countries around the world.

The victim of a hit-and-run accident that occurred a bit more than a year ago, Nicolas realized how lucky he was to have access to healthcare, and vowed during his recovery to help others without that access. He began “looking for a charity that provided healthcare to underserved communities around the world”—and chose International Medical Corps.

When you support Nicholas on his epic ride across America(it’s not too late!), you’ll also be supporting our work around the world providing medical services and training to women, children and men affected by conflict, disaster and disease. Whether you ride across the country is up to you!

It was our honor and pleasure to welcome Nicolas to Los Angeles and International Medical Corps headquarters on Wednesday, July 28! Find out more about his epic journey by checking out the links on this page, and please tell your friends and family about it.
