BENEFITING: Chinatown People Progressive Association Inc.
EVENT: 2017 Chinatown Bikeathon
EVENT DATE: Jun 17, 2017
This team basically consists of Lina (me) and Sonny Mei. We are both youth from BCNC's Youth Advisory Group under Sandra, our Youth Program Director.
Multiple reasons to donate/bike:
1. Kim Situ (if you know her) is like, BFF with Sandra and we want to give love back to both of them.
2. The proceeds ALL go back to the community, and I MEAN ALL. Each penny you donate will be funding CPA's youth internship program CYI (Chinese Youth Initiative). Their program is intensive but ver rewarding, with a focus on Asian American Studies, hands-on community service and community organizing projects.
3. Do you go to Chinatown for dim sum? Ok, how about bubble tea? How about Asian family resources? and school? and work? and community events? Well, don't take that for granted. Chinatown is slowing dissappearing. Gentrification is real folks! The best way to counter it is by raising youth to become community advocates. CYI is doing that. Let's fund them to keep Chinatown alive!
4. Biking is fun and a great way to enjoy the summer breeze. Come and cheer us on even if you are not donating! Let's all celebrate Bike-A-Thon together.
