Hi my name is Katie and I am an inner city school teacher. I love my job and would do anything to help my students, it kills me to see how many students and their families are struggling to make ends meet. I have heard horror stories about where these students live and the life styles they have to endure in order to survive. For instance, we found out one student was living in a one bedroom house with 15 other family members. Another child was falling asleep at her desk everyday for a week and when it was finally coaxed out of her why she was so tired, she told us she couldn't sleep because of the rats in her bedroom. There are so many stories like this all across the country because it is becoming harder and harder for people to afford homes.

In order to help my students and others like them around the country I decided to spend the summer of 2014 biking from Providence to San Francisco with an organization called Bike and Build. Throughout this journey we spread awareness for affordable housing and team with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity to stop and build affordable homes along the way. In order to take part I need to raise at least $4500, 100% of proceeds go directly to affordable housing.
