On May 6th, 2018, I will ride 40 miles in the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour as a member of the Sanctuary for Families’ Bike Tour Team, raising critical funds and awareness for their mission, which is very important to me.
I am a Survivor of domestic violence and I have received services through Sanctuary for Families. I am now a Survivor Leader with Sanctuary and look forward to giving back to support Sanctuary's life saving work.
Sanctuary is the leading non-profit organization in New York State dedicated exclusively to serving the complex needs of domestic violence victims, sex trafficking victims, and their children. I have chosen to ride through all five boroughs to support this organization because, for over 30 years, Sanctuary has provided life-saving shelter, legal, counseling, and economic stability services to thousands of victims. Last year alone, Sanctuary was a lifeline to over 17,000 individuals who came to them for refuge and support. The funds I will raise will support their many programs, and allow survivors like me to receive the tools they need to build safe and independent lives for their families.
I hope you will consider making a donation in support of Sanctuary for Families. Thank you in advance for your generous support!
