For the third year in a row, in February, I have decided to take part in a fundraiser called HomeStart's ICycle. HomeStart is a Boston-based non-profit that seeks to end homelessness in Boston by finding housing for people who currently stay in shelters and helping ensure that they successfully stay there. HomeStart also prevents families from being evicted by providing micro-grants to get them through a difficult period. ICycle is a great event that takes place outside in the middle of Boston in February, and consists of a series of Spin classes designed to give me and everyone else riding a sense of what it would be like to be outside and cold in the winter. It is a great way to get some exercise while also giving back.
Each of us has pledged to raise $350 to end and prevent homelessness, but if each member raises $1,030 then for each rider a family will no longer be homeless this winter and they will be warm in their own home!
Thank you so much for donating!
