JCC Kraków is an amazing community center which serves 80 Holocaust survivors, many young Poles now discovering their long hidden Jewish roots  See more

THE STORY:

We are travelling to Poland this June to participate in our 2nd Ride for the Living & ask for your support!  All of the tax deductible donations go directly to the Jewish Community Center in Krakow. (We cover all of our expenses). JCC Krakow offers amazing programs for Holocaust survivors and other Jews in the community. This includes many young people who are just discovering that they have Jewish roots. 

Ride For the Living is an annual fundraising event to support JCC Krakow. The 55-mile bicycle ride from Auschwitz-Birkenau to JCC Krakow is a journey to remember Jewish history, but, more importantly, to celebrate and support the miraculous rebirth of Jewish life in Poland today.

Ride For The Living was inspired by Robert Desmond who rode his bicycle 1,350 miles from London to Auschwitz, visiting WWII sites of liberation along his journey. After joining the JCC and learning about Krakow's reborn Jewish community, he realized his ride should not have ended in a place of loss but rather at a place of hope, JCC Krakow, joined by members of the local Jewish community and friends from around the world.

The 2017 Ride For The Living will take place from June 22 - 25, 2017. Ride For The Living consists of 4 days of educational programs, tours of Krakow, Shabbat dinner with the community, and the highlight of event, the bike ride. Join the Jewish community and friends from around the world by riding or donating today. To learn more about Ride For The Living, please visit our webpage: www.ridefortheliving.org
