Close on the heels of the ground- breaking TWENTY16 Ride 4 Education scholarship program where a total of $24,000 was awarded to three junior athletes TWENTY16 Ridebiker announces Ride 4 Community grant program. The TWENTY16 Ride 4 Community grant is an opportunity for the athletes and staff to show gratitude for the support they receive from their sponsors and pay it forward to communities in need of assistance. The grant is awarded annually to a non-profit community program or disaster relief fund.
TWENTY16 Ridebiker is awarding the community grant of $5000 to the San Bernardino United Relief Fund organized by Arrowhead United Way. The donation to this relief fund will be used to address the needs of families, victims, and others affected by the December 2nd shooting.
“We are thankful to the athletes and staff of the TWENTY16 team for paying it forward and awarding Arrowhead United Way with a Ride 4 Community grant in support of the San Bernardino United Relief Fund. Every dollar makes a difference and their donation will help those affected by the shooting” said Doug Rowand, Arrowhead United Way President
Arrowhead United Way is a volunteer driven organization that actively supports health and human services by focusing on education, income, and health. Education is the foundation of our individual and collective success whether it is through formal classroom training or an independent quest for knowledge.
The team is proud to be able to assist the community of San Bernardino. “This community is especially to close to our hearts” commented team director Mari Holden. “We race every year at the Redlands Classic which is San Bernardino County and many people in the community have opened their homes to us. We consider them family and we want to stand by them through this tragedy.”
