RIDING FOR A GREAT CAUSE!
In the January 18 edition of The Daily Plant, we detailed the recent adventures of Magary Aime, a 27-year Parks veteran and new cycling-devotee.
Last year, Magary participated in Climate Ride California, a five-day, 320-mile charity ride from Eureka to San Francisco to support sustainable solutions, bike advocacy and environmental causes. Magary had such a great experience that he’ll be making another epic ride this May—from NYC to DC—and he submits the following appeal to all Plant readers!
Magary says, “I am doing it again! I will be riding my bicycle for a great cause. This time, it is on the East coast, 5 days, 300 miles from NYC to the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. My goal is to raise funds for groundbreaking sustainability, climate, renewable energy and a green economy. I am doing my part. Please help me support this great movement.”
