For the past several years I’ve been working with Can’d Aid as a Treads + Trails Ambassador with a focus on working to get more kids on bikes. Since Can’d Aid was founded in 2013,we’ve donated nearly 3,000 bikes to underprivileged children!
This past April I toured California and performed riding demonstrations for over 6,000 kids, sharing my message for a positive lifestyle. The culmination of the tour was a bike donation with Can’d Aid to an entire first grade class of underprivileged kids. A few days later my van was broken in to and I had $25,000 worth of bikes, computers and camera gear stolen. The response from the bike industry and fellow riders was overwhelming and so appreciated. Many people offered to help me track down my stuff and others offered to donate new gear or cash. I politely declined the offers because I started to envision the opportunity for this nightmare to become a positive experience. I knew I had a better use for the generosity directed towards me…I just needed time.
Now I need YOUR help…I want to take advantage of everyone’s offers of generosity directed towards ME, and use them to help some underprivileged KIDS. The goal is to raise $25,000 (the value of my stuff) for Can’d Aid to help get more kids on bikes.This is a HUGE goal and I’ll need A LOT of help to achieve it. That’s why I’m inviting YOU to create your own Power Your People fundraiser below. Not only can you set your own personal goal and rally your friends and family to help reach it, but all funds raised will ultimately help achieve my $25,000 goal as well.
Thanks a ton, Jeff.
