Dear friends and family,
I'm going to ride 205 miles on my bike with the Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary Charity Bike Ride to make a difference for the youth in our community! Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary has a long history of supporting youth organizations with this ride, and I’m joining in to do my part. This is my first multi-day ride in 20 years and I'm excited to participate.
This year the primary ride recipients, receiving 75% of all funds raised is Teen Kitchen Project. Secondary recipients are the Santa Cruz Children's Museum of Discovery, Second Harvest Food Bank, the Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary High School Scholarship program (providing 2 and 4-year college scholarship) and the Charities and Grants program (providing grants to local youth athletic and arts organizations).
For those of you who don’t know about Teen Kitchen Project – I urge you to visit their website http://www.TeenKitchenProject.org. But the summary is Teen Kitchen Project engages youth in the preparation of healthy meals that are delivered to people living with critical and chronic illnesses who, because of their condition, have difficulty shopping and cooking for themselves. Each week Teen Kitchen Project volunteer drivers deliver over 1,600 meals across Santa Cruz County.
I've committed to fundraise a minimum of $650 with a personal goal of $1000! So please consider sponsoring me for this ride. With an all-volunteer crew 100% of the proceeds go to the charities, and it’s all tax deductible as the Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary Foundation 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:
