BENEFITING: Amnesty International USA
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2016
In the wake of last weekend's tragic shooting in Orlando, I’ll ride tomorrow's 102-mile Peninsula Century Spring Classic cycling event in honor of the 102 victims of this heinous, targeted and senseless massacre. We all know the numbers: 49 dead, 53 wounded – many of them LGBT and people of color – the worst mass shooting in our nation’s history. As an expression of solidarity, I’ll ride a mile for each of them.
With these victims, survivors and their families in mind, my ride will also be in support of Amnesty International and their important work – fighting injustice and promoting human rights. While the Orlando attack has reignited the gun control debate, it also highlights a human rights crisis in this country. If you’d like to join me in supporting Amnesty International and their advocacy to protect all people from discrimination and hate crimes, please donate here. Thank you!
