Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Tour de Summer Camps! I'm participating to send more kids to Jewish summer camps.
This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart for two reasons. The first is that Jewish summer camp was incredibly valuable to me growing up. It sparked my love for the outdoors, showed me the value of community and tradition, and introduced me to skills and places I would never have gotten to experience otherwise. Camp was my first real exposure to Shabbat, teamwork, and even outdoor sports like kayaking, zipling, and rock climbing. It helped form the foundation for my personality today. My immigrant family couldn't afford to pay the cost of camp, and I was only able to go because of scholarships made possible by fundraising efforts like this.
The second reason is the symbolism of cycling for me. I grew up never learning how to ride a bike. I first learned when I was 18, and re-learned several more times in my 20's after multiple setbacks. In my mind cycling has always been associated with fear and the pain of falling. I've been eyeing this event for several years now. Now that I'm finally gaining more confidence on a bike, I want this to be my first fundraising ride EVER.
Please support me in overcoming my lifelong fear and contributing to a meaningful cause - sponsor me today!
