Thanks to Clif Bar’s 2 Mile Challenge and one of it’s feature challenge winners, Jesse Edsell-Vetter, MassBike was given a grant of $1,000 dollars!
Clif Bar is helping raise awareness that almost 40% of all urban travel happens within two miles of where people live and that 90% of that travel happens by car! The Clif Bar 2 Mile Challenge has created a competition to see how many car trips could be replaced with a bike instead. A winner of the June challenge was Jesse Edsell-Vetter, a MassBike member, who generously decided to direct a $1,000 grant to MassBike.
Jesse won the June featured challenge where he and his son, Yoni, personally got to give a grant to a bicycle or climate change nonprofit doing good work in their community. Jesse and Yoni are both avid riders and like to get out for longer rides on weekends. They granted the money to MassBike, as Yoni says, “so that there will be more bike lanes for people who ride”.
This generous grant to MassBike from two of our members is a wonderful gift and will further help our advocacy efforts. We thank Jesse, Yoni and Clif Bar for this gift and congratulations to Jesse and Yoni for winning the June challenge.
