I am writing to you a few weeks before the 4th Annual Mother Road Bicycle Classic. We hope that your and/or your friends will take the time to ride in this event. This year’s event is raising tax-deductible gifts for CARE 66. We hope to use this year’s event to raise money for Hooghan Hózhó, a 44-unit downtown affordable housing project that will be completed next year. Due to funding constraints, we have had to remove the Early Childhood Development Center from the project. The building is as originally envisioned with patios, open spaces and sunlight. Our intention is that this will be a space where working families will find a home and the support they need to thrive.
If it is not possible for you to ride in this event please consider sponsoring a rider. You can sponsor by the mile or as a lump sum. Or you can just make a donation to CARE 66. This year we are adding a BBQ in the evening following the ride for riders and their families. Next year we will do the ride during the Gallup Indian Ceremonial weekend.
We are excited about this event. We have Board members and volunteers who help support riders with water, food, and emergency repair supplies. It has been a great way to spend the day in and around Gallup.
