The Babatunde Bombers FC's Ride For Wishes

Organised for: Make-A-Wish Foundation of Switzerland

Make-A-Wish Foundation of Switzerland grants the most heartfelt wishes of children aged between 3 and 18 living with a serious medical condition to give them hope, strength and joy.

The Babatunde Bombers Football Club (BBFC) was officially formed in Zurich, Switzerland, back in 2011 by the same five guys who continue to be at the helm of the club to this very day. 

At the BBFC annual Christmas dinner and awards in 2018, one co-founder, Gian-Paolo, had the idea to do something different in 2019 and suggested a bike ride in the Swiss Alps. Cue a look of horror from most club members gathered around the table! After some discussion, another co-founder and long-time Make-A-Wish volunteer, Stephen, threw in the suggestion of doing it on behalf of this wonderful charity. And now, nine club members have committed to participate in the bike ride up one of the most stunning mountain passes in Europe, The Grosse Scheidegg, on Saturday 29 June. The training begins now!

All the details about the ride can be found here, including a short video:
