APIOPA Cycles for Change
By Scott Chan
With the help of over 40 people, we came up with 10,018 miles of our 10,000 goal. With the help of nearly 100 people, we fundraised an amazing $9,241 of our $10,000 goal. That is a lot of money raised in just 1 month to support the great programming we run!
When we first came up with this idea, we had no idea how much we would be able to raise. Honestly we were just excited to come up with a challenge that would encourage community members to pick up a bike and get active! Our team was so happy to hear stories from folks who had not biked in years join us, or those who did bike, but this challenge encouraged them to bike just a little bit more each week. We hope this is just the starting point for these stories, and we hope to hear of fun bike rides in the near future!
And to end it all off…Let’s be real; your extra change is helping us make change, and we are very thankful. (sorry, had to go there)
