I also want to thank the folks over at Spreenkler, who are putting the TweetUp funds from last month toward the ride.
BUT there's still lots of work to be done! My goal is $1,000 and I have $555 to go in 23 days. Crunch time to find $25/day. Or 55 people to give just $10 each.
A few weeks ago I shared why I'm riding. Tonight, I thought I'd share the following from the United Performing Arts Fund on where your pledge will go:
