Dear BIG Members and Greensboro Area Bicycling Advocates,
As many of you know, BIG has operated a program called Changing Gears for several years now. Changing Gears provides a bicycle plus safety equipment and basic training in bicycle safety skills to socio-economically disadvantaged adults in our community. Changing Gears has been very successful in helping recipients improve their lives by providing them with reliable transportation and opportunties for regular exercise.
Until now, Changing Gears has been funded by grants from REI and the Moses Cone Wesley Long Community Health Foundation. But the last of the grant funding is about to end, and Changing Gears needs your help to continue! To give you even more incentive to contribute to this worthy cause, two generous BIG members have issued a Challenge Grant — they’ll match all monetary donations for the Changing Gears program, up to a cumulative total of $1,000. But this challenge only lasts until December 31, 2009!
Please take a few minutes to find out more about Changing Gears and how you can support this important effort, by clicking here: http://tinyurl.com/ChangingGears
Thank you, and have a great Thanksgiving!
Jeff Sovich, President
Bicycling In Greensboro, Inc.
