ORGANIZER: Transportation Alternatives, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Sep 10, 2016
As many of you know, I've been a stalwart supporter of the amazing work that Transportation Alternatives (TA) accomplishes every day to make the streets of New York City safer and more livable for pedestrians, cyclists and public transit users.
On September 10, I will once again take to the streets of NYC on my little green folding bike, my Brompton, to ride the NYC Century to raise awareness and funds for TA and their advocacy efforts. Your generosity in the past has been motivating, and I ask you to consider supporting the organization this year. Any amount is welcome and greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
The mission. Transportation Alternatives is a non-profit organization that makes a difference on New York City streets – often the difference between life and death. We’re here building support for Vision Zero – New York City’s policy initiative to end traffic fatalities and serious injuries through better enforcement, street design and education.
Tell me more. Over 275 people are killed and 53,000 injured by traffic violence on New York City streets every year. In addition to this huge and senseless human loss, traffic crashes cost the City $4.29 billion annually.
