7 Hills of Kirkland: Shifting Gears

We want to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported and participated in 7 Hills: Shifting Gears in May 2020! It was our first time doing an online fundraiser/event and because of you, it was a big a success! While we are currently short of our $50,000 goal, riders and donors raised over $35,000 over the course of the month and that is incredible given the circumstances. Every dollar raised through 7 Hills: Shifting Gears goes directly to providing housing and case management services to the vulnerable homeless families we serve.
May is over, but you can still donate through the end of the week. We wanted to give all the fundraising teams out there one more chance to meet their goals.
Riders! Please check with employers for matching donations for volunteer time and gifts. We really appreciate the extra effort!
We’d like to give a special thank you our Ride Committee who helped us brainstorm ideas and pivot to a virtual event. Extra special thanks go to our volunteer video crew, Karen Thiel, Troy Thiel, Rob Scarber, and editor Brendon Fogle for created hilarious, memorable, and informative videos to help us promote 7 Hills: Shifting Gears.
