BENEFITING: BIKE LADY INC
It's not about the speed. It's about the need.
Let's virtually go on a bike ride together - a joyride. Let's call it the #crowdride! You don't have to pedal, or sweat, or even own a bike. You just have to believe in the unparalleled magic of the holiday season and that kids need bikes - especially foster kids. The goal of this virtual cycling event is to raise $26,000 to purchase one full semi-truck of Huffy bikes. All bikes will ship to an Ohio prison where inmates have volunteered to assemble them. Cool, right? Totally cool. The finished bikes will then go to child protective services in several Ohio counties and given to foster children just in time for Christmas. Joyful, right? Totally joyful. Let's positively change some kids' lives...one bike at a time.
We have to order the bikes soon. Channel your September Santa and let's roll. Every dollar counts. A buck is a buck is a BIKE! How amazing it would be if cyclists and wannabes from across the land all came together for this #crowdride and ponied a little holiday magical cash so 500 foster kids had the joy of brand new bike this Christmas.
