Please help me reach my goal of $1,000 by October 11!
I look forward to being able to bicycle to work again – more enjoyable than the gym, more reliable than Metro, reduces road congestion and requires no fossil fuels. On occasion, it’s even wind-powered. The DC area is blessed with a good biking infrastructure compared to many other metro areas and an active biking community, but this doesn’t happen by accident – it requires long-term advocacy with local authorities, outreach and education.
That’s why I’m raising money for the Washington Area Bicycling Association (WABA), a local nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a healthy, more livable region by promoting bicycling for fun, fitness, and affordable transportation. WABA is highly respected for its efforts: one of their major projects is the Capital Trails Coalition: bringing together local organizations to increase connectivity among the greenways in the DC area. One of those trails is the C&O Canal towpath, stretching 184.5 miles from Georgetown to Cumberland. On October 11-14, I will be biking the entire length of the C&O Canal to raise money and awareness for WABA’s work. It will be both a challenge and a joy to ride this far.
I hope you’ll join me in this effort to support WABA. Please help me reach my goal of raising $1,000 by October 11!
