Katy Trail Ride for Columbia Montessori School

Google "childcare in crisis," and you will find countless articles outlining a broken system in America that has seen costs rising for decades for families that have seen only stagnant wage growth. The COVID pandemic and now soaring inflation turned a growing problem into an urgent crisis in which providers can no longer find staff to maintain complete services, and many families simply cannot afford the cost of care.

This fall, I'll be riding the entire 240 miles of the Katy Trail in Missouri to raise money for Columbia Montessori School to lower the cost of tuition for families in need and help raise awareness for this critical issue. My fundraising target is $20/mile, or $4,800. Please support my ride by donating to this school that is near and dear to my kids and family.
