BENEFITING: The Palm Beach County Literacy Coalition, Inc.
This summer, I biked 3,000+ miles across America with Overland Summers. To inspire me as I rode 90+ miles per day through deserts and over mountain ranges, I tied my trip to a personal goal to raise $10,000 for the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County. The Coalition works with, among others, migrant farm workers, helping them and their children learn to speak and read English. The goal of the Coalition is to better the lives of all the residents of Palm Beach County by teaching literacy. As the grandson of immigrants from Cuba and Hungary, this is a cause that deeply resonates with me. Like the immigrants the Literacy Coalition teaches, my ancestors came to this country seeking better lives.
News of progress of my Crowdrise campaign encouraged me to push through some tough days on my ride. The trip is now behind me, and I am almost at my goal for the LIteracy Coalition. Your contribution will help me cross this finish line as well.
