The Go Forward Team Ride to benefit the Forward Foundation is this Saturday October 24. The team will ride from Bryan Park in Richmond to Ashland, around Ashland back for a total of 50 miles. If people would rather not do the ride they can still help by doing an activity on their own or with friends and getting sponsorships or donations. Get more info on registration, sponsorships and donations at ForwardFoundation.org.
Today’s guest is Andrea Starr, CEO of the Forward Foundation. Andrea and I talk about the upcoming cycling event to benefit the Forward Foundation which provides assistance and resources for single mothers in crisis. The event is October 24th and will take place in two forms: the organized ride from Bryan Park to Ashland and back, and the virtual event which will take place virtually wherever participants want to do their activities. Virtual participants can ride, walk, run, swim, dance or do just about anything they want as long as they sign up for the event and use the hashtag #goforwardtogether on social media.
This is the first Go Forward event, but the plan is to have it again next year and for years to come when we can hopefully all get together to support the Forward Foundation and celebrate.
