Parcours Institute, a top-tier cycling organization, and RallyMe.com, the leader in sports crowdfunding, have partnered to help elite road cyclists on their pathway to the professional cycling ranks. “Parcours offers an innovative and state-of-the art opportunity for certification to elite road cyclists throughout North America,” said Bill Kerig, Founder and CEO of RallyMe. “We’re excited to partner with Parcours and know together that we can help scores of cycling athletes with their funding goals and missions.”
The partnership is designed to assist Parcours Institute athletes with a dedicated platform to raise money online for the elite certification program.
“One of the fundamentals of our programing is helping athletes build a brand they can present to the public,” said Zach Bell, Managing Director for the Parcours Institute. “The RallyMe platform allows us to begin working with athletes on that before they even start the program while at the same time helping alleviate the financial burdens associated with a serious pursuit of the sport as a profession.”
Bell said he's excited about the connection the partnership can create to the general cycling population as a whole.
“The platform also helps us take the conversation out to the public and gives us a variety of options for engaging the public at large in supporting athlete development," Bell said.
"We have some exciting things planned along side the RallyMe platform that will really give people the opportunity to back a great young athlete and be an important part in their sporting career. These plans go beyond just financial support and will extend to sharing the experience with the athlete."
