As you all know, I am a proud member of the Rotary Club of Sacramento and I am pleased to be a Challenge Champion Ambassador for this year's Sacramento Century. Through the Sacramento Century event, funds are being raised to support the Sacramento Children's Home's Crisis Nursery Program. Challenge Champions have committed to raising at least $350.00 for direct support of the Crisis Nursery Program.
The Crisis Nursery is a place where Children up to 5 years old can go for a safe and nurturing environment. The Mission of the Crisis Nursery is to prevent child abuse and neglect by providing support to families during times of crisis. Children are cared for in a safe, loving home-like environment. There are 2 crisis nurseries in Sacramento and they serve over 1,500 children annually. All the money raised goes directly to the Crisis Nursery, except for minimal administrative costs (less than 10%). To learn more about the Crisis Nursery, take a look at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSXeS_suUm0
As they saying goes, It Takes a Village to make an event of this size happen. The event not only needs riders but a volunteer staff of almost 400 people. Since I will be working the day of the event and cannot be a rider, I will focus my efforts on helping other Challenge Champions raise their funds. Additionally, I hope to raise $1,000 from family and friends who realize the importance of the services the Crisis Nursery provides for families in crisis. Won't you join me in supporting this event.
