BENEFITING: Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers
EVENT DATE: Sep 29, 2013
I love Kids! I love Cycling! Why not combine the two for some good?
So, I have signed up to ride 100 miles on Sept 29th (Apple Cider Century in Three Oaks, MI) in honor of HEART: Teach Humane.
Here's where you come into the mix....will you join me in raising $2,000 for HEART Teach Humane? HEART is truly Chicago's best kept secret...& I'm on a mission to get the word out about the critical work they are doing in the schools.
So, what is HEART?
It's mission is to foster compassion & respect towards people, animals, & the environment by educating youth and teachers in humane education. The programs are offered at no charge to schools & are filling a critical need by encouraging the development of more caring & empathetic kids...diminishing violence & encouraging kindness.
Essentially, it is about building respect for People, Planet, & Pets!
Started in NY, HEART expanded its mission to Chicago in 2009...and to date in Chicago, they have served 7,000 students in 52 schools.
The waitlist of schools in Chicago for this humane education program is rising & my hope is to raise funds so we can fullfill the need. Our goal is to reach students in every zip code in Chicago.
Grateful for you and your support (small or large!)...I'm hoping this 100 mile ride will create a "chain reaction" in awareness for HEART & ultimately, our world to become a more compassion & respectful one.
