The most fun you can have in 24 hours. period.
In 2017 the money raised through the Cruise fully funded two years of the “Listo Para Kinder” program for local non-profit Integrated Community. In our 2019 event, through grassroots fundraising efforts, we raised over $22,500; approaching double our initial fundraising goal! the additional funds raised by the Boat Cruise, supported the expansion of IC’s other early childhood education programs such as Bright By Three and Madres Enseñando which educate parents on how to be the number one teacher in their child’s life. Funds from this years 4th annual event will go towards helping CIIC fulfill their early childhood education program goals. The uncertainty of the coming school year makes this more important than ever as distance learning challenges the education system, and families community-wide.
As we prepare for the 4th annual event, we are looking to teams to reach for the stars, exceeding past years event totals. The 2020 fundraising goal is to match or exceed our previous goal. And we want you to join in the fun!!
You and your bike loving friends and family! Teams of no less than 2, no more than 6. Kids encouraged/invited. Those 10 and under do not count towards the 6 person limit.
