2017 Pedal for Peace Bike-a-thon
EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2017
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Oct 07, 2017
Help us raise funds to support health, education, legal services, and community organizing projects in Chicago, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras! Whether it is scholarships for Mayan school children or Salvadoran college students, health promoter trainings for people in remote rural communities in Colombia, medical supplies for a free Garifuna hospital or legal aid for campesinos in Honduras, campaigns to fight gentrification or to stop deportations in Chicago, your contributions will have a tremendous impact on the quality of people's lives.
All proceeds will be divided between the Chicago Religious Leadership Network on Latin America, Chicago-Cinquera Sister Cities, Chicago-Guatemala Partnership, Concern America, La Voz de Los de Abajo, Autonomous Tenants Union, and Organized Communities Against Deportations.
To bike, click "Register." You will be taken to an EventBrite page, where you will pay the registration fee. Then you'll be prompted to set up a fundraising page--choose the option to JOIN THE TEAM to ride with one of the beneficiary organizations listed above. A list of fundraising teams will show up in a dropdown menu and you can select the team you're riding with. Otherwise, you'll be listed as an individual rider (also OK!).
This year we celebrate 30 years of solidarity with Latin America and its people. Help make this our best year ever!
