THE STORY:

Hi family and friends,


I normally don't do fundraising campaigns and ask for donations from people, especially for fundraisers that you probably don't really care about, but my mom and I are excited to participate in this special bike ride to help Asian youth in Boston; it would be our first time riding it and something we're glad to be a part of :)  If you feel the same way (or the thought of my mom and I riding bikes is funny to you) and want to contribute to our campaign, awesome, if not, that's cool too, we'll still enjoy it and tell you all about it!


Thanks!

Hoan & Jeanne



******************************************************************


The Chinatown Bike-a-thon is a green and healthy fundraiser to support youth leadership and a brighter future in our community. The ride is an 8 or 16 miles on the Paul Dudley White Bike Path along the Charles River. It is a family-friendly event that promotes healthy living and culminates in a picnic on the Boston Common. We are excited to continue to grow our Bike-a-thon and to grow our youth program with your help!

 

The funds raised from the Chinatown Bike-a-thon directly support youth programming. The Chinese Youth Initiative (CYI) provides internship opportunities to high school aged youth from the Greater Boston area, combining an Asian American Studies curriculum with hands-on community service and organizing projects. For over more than 20 years, CYI youth have played crucial roles in the campaign for a Chinatown library, voter registration drives, support for immigrant workers’ rights, establishing the first Chinatown Youth Platform, advocating for public transit and much more. This year, youth have already won a city-funded feasibility study for a Chinatown Library. CYI graduates have gone on to become teachers, lawyers, planners, artists, community organizers, and entrepreneurs, all working to make a difference in Boston and in the world.

 

Ride as an individual or as a team. Prizes will be awarded to riders and teams who raise the most! Adult riders who raise $500 or more or high school student riders who raise $250 or more aka Super Golden Bike-A-Thon Champion Riders will receive a commemorative shirt! The high school youth who raise the most will also be able to ride the Golden Bike.
