Ride for a Reason, Oakland’s bike ride to Sacramento to raise awareness for underfunded public schools has been scheduled for May 14, 2016. Edna Brewer riders are invited to sign up and raise money for our school. Last year we raised $17,000 for Brewer! The code to join the Ride for a Reason Schoology Group is 6GWQK-7XJ5M.
There are two distance options: 45 miles and 109 miles, and with six months to train, you can do it! We’ll have weekend training rides starting in January to help you get there. The R4R coaches love getting people hooked on riding. We can help with bike repair and connecting students with used bikes from our community. We can help you fundraise too with a link on your Facebook page. Riding is a fun, healthy family activity, and with friends to ride with, your kids will be motivated to get out there with you.
Want more information? Come to an information session at Brewer and meet some of last year’s Brewer riders. Students: come to a lunchtime meeting on Tuesday December 8. Parents: come ask questions or learn more from 6-6:30 on December 9 and 10 while your students warm up for the orchestra and band concerts. We’ll meet by the outdoor panther pit, between the gym and the 7th grade wing. If you can’t come to a meeting, but want to ask questions, email Brewer ride coordinator Jen Ryden email@example.com.
