Why I'm Participating

Why I'm Participating

If you know me, you know I love biking and supporting causes I believe in. Sometimes I can do them both at the same time. In the past, I have raised funds for ALS, Sharsheret, OHEL, Jewish Family Services, and others. I am appealing to my network of friends and family to help me raise funds for Geerz.

This year will my second ride for GEERZ.

Geerz uses trained counselors to run after-school clubs in difficult border towns and all over Israel to use mountain biking as therapy to help kids deal with anger, trauma, ADD, ADHD and other social and emotional issues.

Geerz is constantly developing new programs. 2 recent examples:

70 Ukrainian orphans were settled in Nes Harim. Geerz brought them bikes, instructors and safety equipment.

We have developed a group for at-risk Haredi girls who need bikes, instructors, and safety equipment; as well as transportation to areas where they can ride while not violating their community’s standards.

Thank you for your support.
