I've cycled in lots of different places over the years. This year, Roy and I plan to ride in the 2019 Israel Ride.
Why Israel you might ask. As someone who loves Israel and abhors some of the politics and actions of the ruling coalition, I feel it is important to support things that are positive and forward focused.The fundraising we do as part of this ride goes towards the work of two organizations focused on the future. The Arava Institute brings together Israelis, Palestinians, Jordanians, and students from around the world to study and work together to solve the region’s critical environmental challenges. Hazon focuses on sustainability.
On this ride, we will join several hundred cyclists and will be riding from Jerusalem to Eilat, between 150 and 350 miles, exploring Israel and learning more about the work of these two great organizations.
Roy and I together have committed to raising a combined total of at least $7500. We will personally be contributing enough to cover our own costs (flights, hotels, food etc.) so all other contributions will go to the orgnaizations above. Would you consider making a donation at whatever level you are able? All contributions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your support!
