JCCA COVID-19 Program Needs

JCCA COVID-19 Program Needs

From Dan Haft

My wife, Ellen Pemstein, is an A.V.P. at JCCA, an agency that, among other things, supports at risk children and families. I'm raising money for JCCA's Emergency COVID-19 program needs by bicycling daily.

More Info

I have been working at home since March 16th, and feeling pretty useless in terms of contributing to the efforts to help people during this horrible pandemic. 

Then an idea hit me. I go for a bicycle ride (conforming to social distancing) every day just to stay in shape and sane. I thought I might be able to use my ride for some good. My wife, Ellen, is an Assistant Vice President at JCCA, a wonderful agency with many programs serving children and families at risk. All of the funds I raise will go towards JCCA's Emergency COVID-19 needs. 

To make the math simple, I will base my giving levels on committing to bicycle at least 600 miles between March 16, 2020 and June 1, 2020. Since March 16th, I've already bicycled 596.65 miles. Over the last three years, I've averaged 8.32 miles per day. I promise to average at least that until the end of my campaign on June 1, 2020. So by June 1, 2020, I will have bicycled a total of 683.05 miles. For those of you who would like to follow my progress, I will be posting screen shots from my Cyclometer app, which calculates mileage ridden, on my Fundly campaign page. 

I hope you will consider supporting efforts of people on the front line of this pandemic. I am grateful for your support.

Stay safe and healthy!

Dan
