Join us for In This Together, Calvary’s first ever virtual 5k walk, run or bike! Inspiration for this event came from the women living at Calvary. Throughout the pandemic, residents and staff have been taking daily walks together to get fresh air, exercise and to re-center themselves. One of the women told us, “I look forward to the walks every day. They give me peace and allow me to leave my worries behind for an hour. The walks are a blessing during this time.”
Jacob and I (Lisa) have learned so much about endurance from our years of long bike rides. Whether riding from Canada to Mexico or just spending a weekend riding out of the city, we've loved the chance to push ourselves, to see our local community (and the country!), and to meet incredible people along the way.
As many of you know, I've worked with Calvary Women's Services for nearly a decade, and it is truly a special place. Each day I find hope in the strength and tenacity of the women who are changing their lives in our programs.
Since this crisis started, Calvary has been spending an additional $1,000 a day to keep women safe. We need your help so we can continue our life-saving work for as long as it’s needed.
To support Calvary, Jacob and I will be doing our favorite Brooklyn bike ride from our home in Flatbush through the Rockaways and around Jamaica Bay - 35 miles. We're asking you to consider donating $35 or more in honor of our 35 miles!
Thank you for your support!
