BENEFITING: AT THE CROSSROADS
Before you click off this page without reading it (that's what I do with anything over 7 sentences) this IS FOR CHARITY. How annoying is all caps? My mom still send texts and emails in all caps. She also calls me to make sure I get (got) her emails and texts. It explains why I'm so neurotic. I love you mom. Moving on.
The cycling club I founded a few years back, Mission Cycling http://missioncycling.org/ (plug!) is spearheading a charity event called Spinning Spokes For Homeless Folks with our friends at At The Crossroads. We're such good friends we might even get friendship bracelts. Anyway. We basically ride our bikes as many miles from September 1st through October 16th and raise money while doing so. All the proceeds go to At The Crossroads.
I'm going to ride 500 miles in September. This is a lot more than I usually do, cause I'm very important, have a lot on my plate and I don't have a lot of free time but I'm excited to push myself to bike as much as I can. I'm also very good at one arm pushups.
Your donations will help me stay accountable, to both myself and my community. The more I raise, the more committed I am to reaching my goal for the month.
At The Crossroads reach out to homeless youth and young adults at their point of need and work with them to build healthy and fulfilling lives. They provide nighttime street outreach and one-on-one counseling, giving unconditional support for as long as someone needs to build the life they want. They are helping these young people move beyond the streets and reach their goals, and in the process, they are making San Francisco healthier as a whole. ATC is 100% privately supported, and relies on the community to keep their work going. I want to help them reach as many young people as possible.
If you need more incentive to donate, I'll have my 91 year old nana personally call you and ask for donations. She eats mustard sandwiches, doesn't believe in the term 'windchill' and makes funny noises when she sneezes. All adorable.
