DEXTER IS A PROUD SPONSOR OF 80 ANTHEMS IN 80 COUNTRIES!
The Everitt visited 80 countries around the world to raise money for children everywhere who have been affected by war, poverty, climate change or other unfortunate circumstances, specifically through SOS Children's Villages International. This charity works in 134 countries and has over 2500 children's villages throughout the world. The journey will began on November 20, 2015 at Unicef's Universal Children's Day celebrations in Ottawa where Capri sang the Canadian National Anthem and speak as SOS Children's Villages youngest Youth Ambassador. Their journey went until August 2016 and was an immense success.
Capri will be singing the national anthem in the national language of each of the 80 countries that we are going to visit while her little brother accompanies her. They will be inviting as many of the local children as possible to come and sing with them.

Up next, a document on their journey!
So where did Riders for Ryders come from?
Well since the inaugural event in 2009 a passion was ignited in so many people and many teams formed. Sharpeys Cycles (now Riders for Ryders) was one of them who in 2010 merged with 3 remaining team members of The Mad Eh Team. We know where we’re going but we thought it was important for you all to know where we came from.
Sharpey’s Cycles & The Mad Eh Team joined forces for the 2010 ride where Jimi had already renamed the team Riders for Ryder in honor of his son. However early in 2010 Jimi was contacted by Qurban who’s son was also called Ryder and the name was changed once more time to Riders for Ryders but here’s is a bit of history of those first two teams.
