This year will be the 4th annual Back Alley bike-a-thon event, Bike the Blizzard: Arctic Road. This year we're hoping to raise 15k (not far from the high water mark we hit last year, ending at 14k total). Half that money will be used to sponsor youth going to the Youth Bike Summit in Minneapolis in May of 2016, as it has been traditionally used to do, and the rest will go into our general operating fund, to pay for things like locks & helmets, water bottles and snacks for kids during our programming.
Team Gladstone has a three year history of excellence in raising lots of money and having lots of fun and riding our butts off. This year we're setting our fundraising goal higher than ever, and we have confidence you can help us top it. We believe in bikes and kids and that putting the two together makes the world a better place.
Donating money to put kids on bikes is proven way to reduce air pollution, childhood obesity, and traffic. It also creates more independent and confident people for the future. So donate today
If you want to support us but don't have a lot of cash moneys you can volunteer to staff the base camp on the day of or provide us with yummy food. If you're interested in helping talk to Heather at Back Alley Bikes.
