I am so excited to bring Pedal for Peace to Boston! I am part of a group primarily raising money for scholarships for students in small town Guatemala. The community of Saq Ja' has (re)built their own primary and middle school as they have settled back into their village after being displaced by the Guatemalan civil war. The community school allows the students to experience bilingual education in Maya K'iche and Spanish, while scholarships also support high school students who travel to the nearest town.
I have traveled to Saq Ja' personally twice, though the group sends a delegation yearly to maintain our relationship and friendship with the village. It is an accompaniment that has enriched my life immensely.
I will be riding my own made up Boston route, but it will closely adhere to the 26 miles I would be riding were I in Chicago! Feel free to donate how you feel is best, but I welcome your support for this cause! It is dear to my heart.
