Rock-to-Rock Earth Day Ride
April 27, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
The 11th Annual Rock-to-Rock Earth Day Ride is an opportunity to support both Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen AND efforts to preserve our environment, fight climate change, and promote a healthier planet for all!
What is the Rock-to-Rock Earth Day Ride?
Every year, charitable organizations around New Haven participate in an April bicycle-riding event designed to raise money for the participating nonprofits (like DESK!) and their efforts to support sustainable and environmental-friendly practices (like composting organics, recycling, energy efficiency, etc.). Riders who register can choose from one of five routes (depending how much of a challenge you’d like). It’s not a race, but rather just a chance to get some fresh air and raise awareness. Each rider can join a team — like the DESK Souper Heroes! — any any funds that rider raises goes toward the team’s overall goal in support of the benefiting agency (in our case, DESK).
Here’s what you can do:
- Grab a few friends and sign up for the DESK Souper Heroes! There are five different rides, from the leisurely 5-miler to the much more intense 62-miler. Once you’re registered, start getting pledges. Here are some tips on how to do that. Don’t delay; register today!
- Make a donation toward the team-goal of the DESK Souper Heroes and support our efforts to start composting our food waste here at DESK. (Follow the link and type “DESK,” and click the “Team” tab.)
- Spread the word! Each time you share DESK’s team page on social media, you give others the opportunity to contribute and make a difference, too! Don’t be modest: doing-good encourages others to do-good. And feel free to share our flyer: color or gray-scale.
