We bring some big news: registrations for the 2022 edition of the MigraCode Gran Fondo cycling fundraiser are now open! You can already reserve your free entry ticket on the official website, where you will find more details about it.
This is not a simple cycling event, but one aimed at making a social impact through sports. The main objective of the fundraiser is to raise enough money to fund a complete MigraCode web development course supporting up to 18 students from vulnerable communities through free tech education and other additional support.
The second edition will take place on Saturday 18th of June, where cyclists of all levels will be riding between 90 and 220 kilometers in the Catalan Pyrenees to raise funding and awareness for our program and the situation of our students. Our goal is to raise €15,000! The form to register is already available here, but if you are still on the fence about joining this event you can read more about last year’s edition over here.
