Friends of LA -
Thank you for visiting my team fundraising page. Donate now!
Many of you know I am a cyclists and I have been for my entire life. As a kid I rode my bmx bike as far a my legs would take me. That bike both kept me out of and got me into trouble, but I have always been lucky to have family and resources to help get me to where I am today. Not everyone has the same chances, and it is important for those who can help members of their community to take the time and do what they can. For me, I am choosing to spend my time and utilize my contacts to support part of my communty - I am riding in support of the Sacramento Children's Home Crisis Nursery Program. Donate now!
The Sacramento Century Challenge is sponsoed by the Rotary Club of Sacramento, they run the event. When you donate it will show as a donation to the Rotary Club of Sacramento, but the funds raised through Century Challenge will go to the Sacramento Children's Home Crisis Nursery Program.
You may not know that one of my first jobs was running the on the water program at a community sailing center, where any child in the city of Boston could spend a week with us learning about the water, the harbor and how to sail. It was a great opportunity to use one of my few resources - my knowledge of sailing and running a waterfront - to help the kids in Boston learn about the historic waterfront in their city and stay out of trouble for part of their summer. Our efforts were on the fun side of community support and we hope we had a positive impact, but the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery Center is doing serious and important work - they deserve our support.
When I learned about the organization the Sacramento Century is benefiting it made perfect sense to me, and brought me back to my days in Boston.
I am riding for a reason on October 5th, where I will ride 100 miles to support the Sacramento Children's Home Crisis Nursery Program. This will be my first Sacramento Century Challenge, but it is the 6th time The Challenge will take place.
Please take a moment to donate to my ride in support of the Sacramento Children's Home Crisis Nursery Program. Its mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect by providing support to families at times of crisis. For more information about the program go to the website at www.kidshome.org
Thank you and see you out on the road.
