So, the Bikes Not Bombs Bike-A-Thon was rained out on June 5th so we’ll be riding on the rain date of June 19th instead. This means I have one more chance to encourage you to sign up and ride or to support the ride of me and my son Peter. So far we’ve received $463 in donations for Bikes Not Bombs. It would be awesome if we could get to $500 or more!
Here’s my original appeal:
On Sunday, June 5, I will be riding with my 8-year-old son Peter in the Bikes Not Bombs Bike-A-Thon! The Bike-A-Thon is always a fun event and it raise money for a terrific cause. This will be our fourth time participating.
Based in Boston not far from where we live, Bikes Not Bombs serves two great purposes. First they collect and renovate bicycles to ship to developing communities in Central America, the Carribean and Africa. These bicycles help people meet crucial transportation needs with an easily maintained and environmentally friendly vehicle. Secondly, they help youth right here in Boston learn skills such as urban bike riding and bicycle repair that contributes to building their confidence and leadership skills. Please help us in our efforts by making a generous donation!
Here’s how you can help:
- Donate now at our Bike-A-Thon page.
- OR, sign up at Bikes Not Bombs to ride with us on June 5th!
- Cheer us on during the ride or post an encouraging comment!
