On October 15, 2011, I will be cycling 100 miles in the 23rd Annual Sea Gull Century-a nationally acclaimed bicycle event touring the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I invite you to join me on the journey with over 8,000 other riders.... from the comfort of your home or office ..that's right you don't even have to move!....However,by just making a monetary pledge of only $1 each mile along the way as a sponsor you can make a contribution of $100 and join me in creating educational resources to launch the life of others. "Ride a Mile/Launch a Life" Of course any amount... $150, $200 or more will move us closer to our goal! All money raised will be used to help launch The Linton 200 Charitable Fund at the National Philanthropic Trust. This donor sponsored fund will be used initially to endow the Gordon Linton Transportation Scholarship given annually by the Philadelphia Chapter of The Conference of Minority Transportation Officials and to support a Fellowship in Public Policy at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania.
In these most difficult times..Let us join together, empower our young people and send a tremendous message to a future that we may not see. I shall be eternally grateful!
