Pedaling for Puerto Rico

$4,516 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 82 people in 10 months
Created July 26, 2018
On our recent site visit to Pasadena, we learned about an amazing band program from Puerto Rico, the Banda Escolar de Guayanilla.  The band was selected to perform in the 2019 Rose Parade.  However, their town was hit very hard by the hurricanes last fall, and they are struggling to raise funds for their students to make the trip.  Most of the fundraising committed to the program has been diverted to more pressing needs.

 We would like to raise funds to purchase 160 pairs of marching band shoes that need replaced as well as other needed equipment and supplies.  Our fundraising goal is $10,000.

How can you help?  Dr. P is going to cycle 500 total miles over the next 10 days (July 27-August 5) to raise funds.  Follow Dr. P on twitter @MParulekar for pictures, videos, and updates about each days ride.

You can sponsor the 500 Mile Pedal for Puerto Rico at 1 cent per mile, 5 cents per mile, 10 cents per mile, or 25 cents per mile. Or you can make a donation of any amount.

Sponsorship Levels
1 cent per mile= $5.00 Donation
5 cents per mile= $25.00 Donation
10 cents per mile= $50.00 Donation
25 cents per mile = $125.00 Donation

All of the proceeds will go towards the purchase of marching band shoes, other needed supplies, and Rose Parade expenses for the Banda Escolar de Guayanilla. Funds will be routed through the Michael D. Sewell Foundation and will be tax deductible.   Ride mileage will be tallied using the STRAVA App.
