In November, five Tar Heels (TEAM TAR HEELS) will travel to Israel to take part in The Israel Ride, a ride to benefit two organizations seeking to transform our planet for the better, including peace in the middle east. We will each be biking between 200 and 350 miles, well over 1000 miles as a group, traveling from Jerusalem to Eilat. We raise money for the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies to support Jewish, Arab, and Palestinian students to become environmental leaders and for Hazon to support sustainable food and Jewish life. Research on water, solar, wind, food, and sustainable energy can cooperatively solve joint Mideast and world problems without conflict or politics.
Our legs will be pumping hard physically, and we will challenge ourselves spirtually too. We invite you to be part of the journey. Our team has a combined fundraising goal of $30,000 and we would appreciate any support you can offer. We hope to have over 120 supporters too. You can contribute to individual members or the team.
Thank you in advance for your support and encouragement!
