DARTMOUTH BIKES VIRTUAL RIDE To Support Dartmouth-Hitchcock COVID-19 Community Relief Fund
WHO WE ARE:
We are Dartmouth Bikes - join us and do something active for a good cause!
As a group of college students, we love to ride our bikes, whether on the road, up a mountain, or down a gravel path (sometimes all in the same afternoon!). We believe in using this love for bikes to empower one another to affect real positive change in our community.
These are strange times. But our shared belief that we can harness the power of bikes to make an impact on our community has not wavered. That is why we’ve decided to use our healthy bodies and our spare time - two luxuries that not everyone has right now - to raise money for the members of our community who are not so fortunate.
WHAT: Ride a Virtual 10K, 30K, 50K (or whatever you please--if you don't have a bike, walk or run!)
WHO: Anyone! (appropriately distanced, of course)
DATE: May 23-25 (anytime)
LOCATION: Wherever You Are
BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER YOUR RIDE:

ABOUT DARTMOUTH BIKES:
Since 2011, Dartmouth Bike’s mission has been to empower individuals to solve the human and environmental problems presented by a rapidly changing planet starting with embracing sustainable bike culture. We do this through hands-on teaching, providing maintenance and repair services, refurbishing abandoned bikes, transforming campus bike policy, and building an inclusive community where all ideas and perspectives are welcome.
WHAT YOUR DONATION SUPPORTS:
All donations raised during this challenge will support the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health COVID-19 Community Relief Fund. This fund provides financial assistance to organizations working to support those who are suffering from the economic, social, and health impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak in the Upper Valley and beyond. Right now, you can double your impact! Gifts to the D-HH COVID-19 Community Relief Fund will be matched dollar for dollar up to a total of $35,000 thanks to the generosity of our friends at ImmuNext and an anonymous donor.
D-H COVID-19 Community Relief Fund:
We also want to extend a huge thank you to our partner Positive Tracks. Positive Tracks is a national non-profit organization that helps young people make change for causes they care about using the power of athletics. They call it sweating for good! They have been extremely helpful and fun to work with, and we are so grateful for their support. You can check out their website at:
