I am pleased to announce that I am riding in the 2019 Israel Ride. The ride is a fundraiser for the important environmental work of the Arava Institute. They perform environmental projects as well as research & education focused especially on the aravah valley of Israel and Jordan. They bring together and help train future scientists and environmentalists from Israel Jordan and Palestine in a cooperative venture between these 3 groups. Go to their web site at arava.org to learn about the work & education that they perform.
Cyclists will be riding from Jerusalem to Eilat, a distance of 350 miles exploringthe southern desert end of Israel and learning about the work of two great organizations, the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and Hazon, another environmental preservation organization . My group will be doing the 350 mile ride over 5 days.
I have committed to raise at least $3950 towards this cause, and your contribution would be greatly appreciated. I have already committed a $ 950 fee to enroll and help defray the costs of the program. I will also fund flying myself and my bike to Isreal and either extensively upgrade my old bike for the trip or purchase a newer one. I will commit myself to a $1000 donation towards the minimal $3950 fund raising goal needed. Would you consider making as generous a donation as possible to help raise the remaining $2950? All donations are fully tax deductable and they are greatly greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your support! Richard
