100,000 Feet for Black Lives Matter

Hello everyone!

With everything that is going on these days in our country, it can be difficult to express how we’re feeling. Recent events and countless others in our nation's history surrounding inequality and racism must not be tolerated and we all MUST seek change. Personally, I cannot relate to the suppression and fear that so many Americans experience on a day to day basis, and it is clear to me that this is the reason it has taken so long for me to open my eyes to see that I need to help too. I have always been disgusted by the racism and general hate I see in the news, but I have never done anything about it because I never knew where to even start or what I could do to help. …this is where I start.

I am embarking on a personal cycling challenge to raise awareness of & funding for the Black Lives Matter Foundation. On the morning of Wednesday, June 17th, I will be starting my personal challenge to climb 100,000 feet of elevation on my bike in a single ride. My hope is to complete the ride in however long it takes while following the Everesting rules. I know this sounds like a crazy idea, but I guess crazy ideas are a part of brining change. Rain or shine I will continue riding until I climb 100,000 feet. So, please share this with friends, family, teammates, and anyone who can help. I will be doing this ride on a local climb in West Hartland, Connecticut. Please reach out to me if you want to come ride with me for a part of the challenge!

100% of the funds raised will be donated to the Black Lives Matter movement.

I cannot wait to reach the fundraising goal, and if we can raise more, let’s do it! Thank you all.
