Hazon has received an anonymous gift that will allow us to offer both

their cars within the next year

Qualifying California Ride participants will receive a rebate on
registration and a matching gift towards their fundraising minimum.
Teen Riders will receive a $100 rebate on the registration cost and
adult riders will receive a $250 rebate after the conclusion of the
California Ride. All scholarship recipients will receive a $200 match
in their fundraising efforts.

The Hazon Jewish Environmental Bike Rides in Israel and New York were
founding programs for Hazon, the leading Jewish environmental
organization in North America.  In recent years, Hazon has expanded
its presence on the West Coast with our Food Conference and the
California Ride.  Hazon’s work is at the forefront of teaching the
Jewish community about environmental issues and how to make a
difference.  When you support Hazon, you are supporting local organic
farms in the U.S., helping to build peace through environmentalism in
Israel and the Middle East and supporting some of the most innovative
and impactful programs in the Jewish community.
