As an affirmative act of resistance (and persistence!) I intend to complete the 45 mile version of the ride to Sacramento.  It would mean the world to me if you would make a donation to the cause.  My 73rd birthday is upon me soon (March 25) and I would consider this a wonderful gift.  

Below is the statement from the Ride 4 A Reason organizers,:  

RIDE FOR A REASON is our annual bike ride from Oakland to Sacramento to advocate for public education, and raise essential funds for school enrichment programs in Oakland. We ride to the steps of the State Capitol to advocate for greater funding for education. 

Many elective classes and enrichment programs depend entirely on community fundraising. But community fundraising alone can’t do the deep work needed to fully support all schools. That’s why we ride to Sacramento — to bring attention to underfunded schools.

The funds we raise will be split evenly between Edna Brewer Middle School, Claremont Middle, Oakland Technical High, Emerson Elementary, Westlake Middle School, Oakland International High and our new "family member", Roosevelt Middle School.
 

Thank you for supporting Ride for a Reason 2017.   Your donation is greatly appreciated!
