Victoria Fanslow and Diane Gantenhammer, 2004 graduates of Farmingdale High School, are training for a one-month bike trip. In May, they will begin a 31-day bike trip, spanning more than 1,000 miles with just bicycles and a tent. They will begin in San Francisco and end in Vancouver, Canada.
The goal of their journey is to raise funds for Support for International Change, an organization that Fanslow has worked with over the last two years. She has lived and worked in rural Tanzania doing HIV education, awareness and testing. Support for International Change was founded in 2002 with the dual goals of reducing the impact of HIV and AIDS in northern Tanzania and offering service-learning opportunities to future leaders in international health and development.
