Follow along as I cycle for CASA of New Hampshire

I am undertaking this journey not only to fulfil a personal goal, but also in support of an organization I care for deeply, CASA of New Hampshire. My slightly modified “Portland-to-Portland” route began June 10 in Astoria, Oregon, and will end on July 22 (give or take, depending on my progress) in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. My solo ride is 3,800 miles, averaging about 100 miles a day, and I ultimately hope to raise $38,000 for CASA of NH so more children who have experienced abuse and neglect can have a dedicated advocate by their side.  

 

As a CASA of NH board member, I see firsthand the impact they have on the lives of children in New Hampshire. CASA’s mission resonates with me on every level. Children in unstable homes, those who suffer abuse and neglect, need a voice – they are so isolated. I believe in CASA and the amazing volunteer advocates who represent these children – their work is critical.

 

I also wanted something to keep my head focused while I’m riding across the country – for when I’m tired and questioning what I’m doing. It’s important for me to realize that I may be suffering today on the bike, but that’s nothing like what these kids suffer. I have a choice, but they don’t get a choice, and I’ll take their inspiration with me.

 

You can follow along on my progress on this site, where I’ll be posting photos and updates as I make my way across the country.

 

I am covering 100% of my costs so all the funds are going to CASA. Thank you for supporting me and CASA’s crucial mission.

What is CASA?

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of New Hampshire provides trauma-informed, best-interests advocacy for New Hampshire children and youth who have experienced abuse and neglect by empowering a statewide network of trained volunteer advocates to speak on their behalf so they can thrive in safe, permanent homes. Since its founding in 1989, CASA of NH has advocated for nearly 12,000 children in court, giving them a chance at a better future.
