In addition to the normal fees please make a separate $9 payment by PayPal to: even...@rusa.org You will get ACP credit and $14 will be donated to the Mariupol Club.
The Mariupol/Lviv club is asking that randonneurs around the world join their club and sign up for a 200k or 300k event in Mariupol, at a cost of $14, then ride a similar length event on a scheduled ride in their home country between now and the end of October and send their ride results to Mariupol instead of filing directly with ACP. The Mariupol club will credit the rider with a 200k or 300k event held in Ukraine and submit the results to ACP who will accept these results as official rides. The net of this is riders get credit for an ACP event in Ukraine and know they are doing something to help, and the Mariupol club will have funds to contribute to war support efforts in U.kraine through the Ukrainian charity foundation "Come Back Alive" (https://savelife.in.ua/en/about-foundation-en/) for the purchase of bulletproof vests, helmets and tactical first-aid kits for the defenders of their country
