THE STORY:

Over Labor Day Weekend, I participated in Hazon’s New York Jewish Environmental Bike Ride. I biked 70+ miles over two days; from the Hudson Valley to Manhattan. (Quite a feat, especially since last summer I was in a cast and crutches!) This Ride raises funds in support of environmental projects and organizations across the United States and Israel.

Hazon, the largest Jewish environmental organization in the United States, has been running this ride since 2001. Celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2010, Hazon is a recognized leader in the New Jewish Food Movement. I have been involved with Hazon since 2007, first as an intern and currently as a freelance Graphic Designer. I have created the materials for past Rides, but this was my first time participating!

Money raised from the New York Ride will help support Hazon’s work, including a multi-day Food Conference held in California (which I attended this past year) and over 40 CSAs (Community-Supported Agriculture programs, which work as farm co-ops). A portion of the money raised will also help small-scale environmental projects in Jewish communities, including green roofs at synagogues, gardens at day schools, and other local initiatives.

I trained for the Ride since May. I cannot even remember the last time I was on a bicycle before this summer. It is challenging, but I really enjoy it. I would be incredibly grateful if you would sponsor me in this great endeavor. I am hoping to raise $1800.

Thank you,

Lisa
