Faculty, Staff, Students and Friends of NSU: Welcome 33 ‘Bike and Build’ volunteers traveling to California on Bicycle

with one comment

Event to take place Thursday, June 24th; 8:00 pm; Baptist Collegiate Ministry Center (500 Caspari St) on NSU’s Main Campus

Join us at the ‘Bike and Build’ presentation and learn about the many ways in which we can become involved with ‘Bike & Build’ Service Project for affordable housing. Over the course of seventy-five days, the Bike and Build team will make their way across the southern states from Florida to California, cycling approximately 3700 miles total while raising $137,999 for affordable housing.

Bike & Build is a 501(c)(3) independent nonprofit organization. We work with young adults to produce cross-country fundraising cycling trips, open to participants ages 18-25. The proceeds from our events are disbursed to affordable housing organizations to underwrite projects chiefly planned and executed by young adults in this age group. Bike & Build will disburse a portion of the proceeds from our 2010 tours to affordable housing groups across the nation through a competitive grant application process. All grants will fund affordable housing projects chiefly planned and executed by students and young adults, ages 18 to 25. Bike & Build welcomes all housing groups and service organizations to submit $500 to $10,000 grant application for consideration. Our program aims to mobilize young adults to affect the affordable housing cause — we welcome applications for established programs, as well as those for innovative and non-traditional projects that lead to affordable housing on a local, regional, or national level.
