On April 25, I am riding my bike in the 12th annual Rock-to-Rock event, which raises money to support more than 30 New Haven area organizations promoting sustainability. With the 50th anniversary of Earth Day occurring in April 2020, and our federal government being so misguided in its views on the environment, supporting local nonprofits trying to make change is particularly important.
I am riding once again for Team Common Ground, representing a high school in New Haven with a mission focused on the intersection of the environment and social justice (http://commongroundct.org/). I have been so impressed with the efforts of younger folks to push for change to save our planet, both globally and locally. That makes me especially excited to ride in support of this school.
I also ride each year because it is fun to ride 40 miles around greater New Haven, with lots of other folks riding for a common purpose.
Thanks so much for considering supporting Common Ground and the Rock-to-Rock event!
