Bike & Build in an excellent organization run by dedicated and passionate young adults. I participated as a rider in one of their cross-country cycling trips in 2009. Our group of 32 riders raised over $130,000 to support affordable housing organizations--and we were just one of eight groups biking across country that year! We worked at 8 build sites along the route with affordable housing organizations like Habitat for Humanity. Half of the funds we raised that summer went to building half of a duplex in Providence, RI, and we helped decide what other organizations should receive grants from Bike & Build. It was a life-changing experience for me, and I have continued to stay involved with the organization by sponsoring other riders and attending the 10-year anniversary celebration (complete with fundraising for affordable housing and a build day with the Philadelphia chapter of Rebuilding Together).
