2015 Pedal for Peace photos!
Thanks to all of you who rode on Saturday, we collectively raised $10,000 in pledges and contributions for health, education and community organizing efforts in Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras! A special joy was having with us Emilio, one of the students who received scholarship support through the Chicago-Guatemala Partnership, tell us about the impact of scholarships on his village in Guatemala.
A special thanks to volunteers Jerry Pendergast and Bob Hearst from Chicago-Cinquera Sister Cities, who staffed and brought snacks for the 12- mile mid-point refreshment table; Mary Naftzger and Pat Wilcoxen from Chicago-Guatemala Partnership, who staffed and brought snacks for the south registration and 24-mile mid-point refreshment table; Marisa Leon Gomez and Kayla, from CRLN and North Park University, who helped with set-up and staffed the north registration site; and Vicki Cervantes, Miguel Vazquez, and Leslie Fiedler from La Voz de los de Abajo and Concern America, who helped with set-up and break-down of the site.
Below are photos from the event.
