Cycling for Change Event

 

Keystone Club has been a long-time supporter of Cycling for Change since its creation. So when they introduced the idea of organizing an event to help break the cycle of human trafficking the teens were happy to participate. People were invited to join in this virtual event by walking, running, or biking. Then they were instructed to post their pictures using #ihatetraffik to social media to show that they were involved from wherever they were. The teens from Grenville Baker headed to the Jones Beach Path that starts out of Cedar Creek Park to show their support. This is one of their favorite spots to go as a group and the members were glad to have the chance to go on such a nice day. Some of the members biked the five miles all the way down to the beach and others walked part of the path. They were a little winded after so much time in quarantine, but they made it to the end and back. They were very excited for water though. The members handed in money for the cause and they donated it to Cycling for Change through their website. John Cruz said, “It was nice to feel useful and do something good and feel connected to something.” John expressed the sentiments of the group overall and it was a very productive last community service project for the year.
