2021 in Review
We were honored to work with the following organizations in 2021, and look forward to sustained partnerships.
TACA (The Autism Community in Actions)
Mission: TACA provides education, support and hope to families living with autism.
In April of 2021, we held charity rides at our Costa Mesa, Monarch Beach, and Long Beach studios with the goal of not only bringing heightened visibility to the cause of TACA, but to take action in standing up for autism acceptance and families coping with this developmental disorder. We surpassed our expected fundraising goal: ending with $30,000 raised.
The Pink Journey Foundation
Mission: To provide breast cancer education to EVERY woman, help reduce risk, lead to early detection, and save lives.” They work tirelessly to provide optimism, knowledge, and support from diagnosis through survivorship.
This past October (2021), we partnered with the Pink Journey Foundation to raise funds and awareness through a series of philanthropic events centered around cycling and socializing. Aside from hosting our own cycle-centric charity ride, we also invited six community-focused restaurants to curate a unique “cocktail for a cause” initiative with a percentage of proceeds going to the Pink Journey Foundation—the result of all efforts combined: $9,141 raised for the cause.
