PROJECT 

To raise funds with this bicycle ride across the western US which will provide children and teenagers with bicycles in order to create an outlet to express themselves and cope with their struggle with mental health disorders.

 

Every day, when I have completed my daily ride, I will keep a written blog on facebook discussing what I have experienced that given day and how I feel about what is ahead.  Whether I am in pain or thrilled about what lies in the future, my written blog, pictures and videos will keep the foundations supporters informed on the progress.

PROJECT 

On Christmas morning we had the opportunity to give back to the homeless community. Such amazing people. People who should not be forgotten about. Humble and loving people. So great to see individuals ask for a half cup of soup so that the next person could have a cup of homemade chili or clam chowder. In one hour.. 163 people were fed a hot meal that day. Please stay tuned as another food outreach project is being planned for the near future and volunteers are welcomed.

60/40 Foundation would love to share with you all a picture of a young man impacted by all your support and donations. He now has a form of transportation to get around town for exercise, to and from his job, to get groceries and more importantly a way to bring mental and physical happiness to himself. Please help continue this movement. We want the foundation to always give 100% of the donations back to the community. We as a community can do so much together.  Mental health disorders are a serious issue and we need to help those in need

                  

 

PROJECT 

The power of community is an amazing thing. We want to thank Lauren Padula and everyone at the Lululemon Run Club along with Pat Murray from the San Diego Bicycle Club for allowing us as a community to help get Juan Carlos Viñolo back on his bicycle and aid in his ability to be independent once again. Good day to all and please share as we still need to raise funds for his medical bills.

PROJECT 

Give The Dream and 60/40 Foundation coming together to make a change at Mushroom Caves in Solona Beach, CA. What was a beautiful slot canyon for amazing trail hikes and runs had become a trash dumpster. Project Trail Clean brought back the beautiful trail system for all to enjoy.
