Ride for the Living: Indoor cycling bike ride

Ride for the Living
June 23, 2017

Join our friends from JCC Krakow (Poland) as they ride 55 miles from Auschwitz to their JCC. Your participation helps support programs that are building renewed Jewish life in Poland. The Krakow JCC helps over 75 Holocaust survivors, young adults discovering their Jewish roots, and will be opening a preschool for its youngest members this fall. Open to the entire community. There is a suggested donation to participate in the ride. $18/ride

Ride For The Living was inspired by JCC Krakow member Robert Desmond who rode his bicycle 1,350 miles from London to Auschwitz visiting WWII sites of liberation along his journey. After joining the JCC and becoming an active member, he realized his ride should not have ended in a place of loss, but rather at a place of hope, JCC Krakow, joined by the Jewish community and friends from around the world.

All rides will take place in The J’s Indoor Cycling Studio
