In 2012, the Eastern Elementary family lost a treasure. Zeke Goodwin was a sweet, gentle, quiet young boy with an infectious laugh. Those who knew him will tell you how very special he was.
Norte! is honored to help remember and celebrate the gift of Zeke’s life as well as support the Zeke Goodwin Memorial Scholarship.
Zeke would have been in the 5th grade this year. A big man on campus, for sure. As his fellow classmates get ready to move on from this amazing school, we’d like recognize them as a way to remember Zeke. With support from McLain Cycle, we will be giving away this Specialized Hot Rock mountain bike to a 5th grader who exemplifies “Zeke’s Way”.
We’re also going to make this year’s Zeke Goodwin Memorial Ride the best ever. With planning help from his classmates, we’re organizing a new and improved route on Eastern’s neighborhood streets and trails and a “I Ride For Zeke” pledge campaign.
As a way to raise money for the Zeke Good Memorial Scholarship fund, we’re asking the entire Eastern community to collect “I Ride For Zeke” pledges leading up to the big day. Can we raise $5,000 for Zeke? We think we can.
Collect pledges as an individual or sign up for a Crowdrise account and organize a “I Ride For Zeke” team to collect pledges as a family, class, business or organization and pedal together on May 27th.
