It is with great pleasure that I welcome Ryan Hall as my cross-country ride partner. From the first thought of the ride I was hoping for one person who wanted to go the full distance, but finally made a commitment to the ride by myself when no one appeared. So, I am very grateful to have Ryan join me in this adventure. We welcome other riders for any portion of the ride – many have already inquired, so the ride is already taking on a life of its own.
We have set a fundraising goal of $20,000 to support the work of climate solutions through Citizens’ Climate Lobby and Cool Planet. We have a $2000 matching donation in effect right now, so your donation will be doubled by contributing here: http://tinyurl.com/mindysride (soon to be our team fundraising page).
It is a full team effort to plan this ride – the two of us could never manage all of this and accomplish our outreach goals without many more people to help. Join the planning team by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Our next call is on Tuesday, July 19 at 6pm Central time.
Training and planning and outreach, oh my!
