I am turning 40 in less than a week and need your to support me in the15th Annual Chinatown bike-a-thon. CYI is the reason I am at CPA. I hope to raise $4000 this year. Please give genrousely.
Here is some details about Bike-A-thon and CYI. Me, turning 40 does not have much detail yet.
The Chinatown Bike-a-thon is a green and healthy fundraiser to support youth leadership and a brighter future in our community. The ride is an 8 or 16 miles on the Paul Dudley White Bike Path along the Charles River. It is a family-friendly event that promotes healthy living and culminates in a picnic on the Boston Common. We are excited to continue to grow our Bike-a-thon and to grow our youth program with your help! The funds raised from the Chinatown Bike-a-thon directly support youth programming.
The Chinese Youth Initiative (CYI) provides internship opportunities to high school aged youth from the Greater Boston area, combining an Asian American Studies curriculum with hands-on community service and organizing projects. For over more than 20 years, CYI youth have played crucial roles in the campaign for a Chinatown library, voter registration drives, support for immigrant workers’ rights, establishing the first Chinatown Youth Platform, advocating for public transit and much more.
This year, CYI is working on a public transit campaign learning about gaps between community needs and MBTA service as well as the decision makers within the MBTA. Just as exciting, CYI increased its summer internship stipend to $1500 this year! CYI could not provide opportunities like these without support from folks like you!
