Dear friends and family,
Please sponsor me (Crew) and Braxton (Rider) on a one-day ride to help families in dire need. As if the Pandemic wasn't enough, we are now facing devastating fires in Santa Cruz County. More than 77,000 people have been evacuated as of August 23, 2020. There are a number of organizations helping all of our families in need. The organization we are raising funds for on this ride is Jacob's Heart, which provides support services to families with children undergoing cancer treatment. The families this organization helps are dealing with unprecedented circumstances. Pandemic, fires, unemployment, remote learning and, worst of all, a child undergoing treatment for cancer.
In light of Covid-19, this year, the Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary 3-day ride has been changed to a one-day ride. Only 100 riders will be participating and Covid-19 measures will be in place.
Please help me raise much needed money for this spectacular organization!
For those of you who don’t know about Jacob's Heart – I urge you to visit their website http://www.JacobsHeart.org. But the summary is that Jacob's Heart exists to improve the quality of life for children with cancer and to support their families in the challenges they face. They provide family-centered care that addresses the emotional, practical and financial struggles for families of children and teens during treatment, families experiencing anticipatory grief and those who are bereaved.
Braxton and I have set a personal goal of $2,000! So please consider sponsoring us for this ride. With an all-volunteer crew 100% of the proceeds go to the charities, and it’s all tax deductible as Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit.
Donations by cash or check can be mailed as follows:
Checks should be made out to "Sunrise Rotary Foundation" and mailed to the following address:
