Most recently I've sailed the large oceans in search of large whales. However, at present I am enjoying terra firma and the shared commitment and authentic community at the Philadelphia affiliate as an AmeriCorps member.
Habitat Philadelphia's 2nd annual Ride For Homes is hitting the road June 5 to 8, 2014! The four day round-trip ride raises critical dollars for Habitat's building projects, raises awareness for Habitat's work in Philadelphia, and takes our riders on a gorgeous, supported bike tour of the Pennsylvania countryside. Total distance is approximately 250 miles, and the atmosphere is friendly, inclusive and non-competitive. This year's Ride For Homes begins in Philadelphia and stops in Lititz, Gettysburg and Strasburg before returning home.
The goal of the Ride For Homes is to raise $35,000 for Habitat Philadelphia's home construction and home repair projects, helping Habitat to continue providing critical affordable housing services to low-income families in the city. By supporting a rider, you are helping them cover the costs of their ride and making a significant donation to Habitat. Please donate today and help us reach our goal!
