Welcome to Team Shalom’s Red Ribbon Ride web page!
We are an inclusive group of Jewish and non-Jewish people, practicing radical hospitality, who love to crew, ride, laugh and seek to create a Jewish presence raising funds for worthy causes. We ride together as a large group and in smaller groups from early Spring till late Fall. We never leave anyone behind!
Our primary fundraising focus is the Red Ribbon Ride. This year will be our team's 6th year on the RRR -- joining what everyone calls the “Traveling Bubble of Love." The RRR is a 4 day, 300 mile fully supported ride July 14-17. Crew must commit to all 4 days. Riders may join the Ride late or leave early, but remain responsible for the minimum fundraising amount and transportation to or form the ride.
We would love to have you join Team Shalom by either:
- Honoring us with a financial gift. Each team rider is responsible for reaching their own minimum, however gifts to the team are certiainly welcome and encouraged. We have created a special proxy "rider" to collect your team donations - just find the team member named Tzedakah Bachs (for anyone who doesn't know, tzedakah means charity and bachs, well... ok, just a fun way to spell box.
- However, if you wish to have your gift divided among a number of team members, please call the Red Ribbon Ride office at 612.822.2110 who can process your donation or send a check made out to the Red Ribbon Ride to Harvey Zuckman, 3500 Holmes Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55408
- Crewing for volunteering for the Red Ribbon Ride We love our crew and volunteers!! They are the lifeblood for the riders and we need nearly as many crew as rider. Crewing is a 4 day commitment. That may sound like a lot but living iwth HIV is a lifetime, so take a few days out to join us. Also, volunteers are needed to help, especially in the days leading up to the Ride, the morning we head out and the day we return, and after the event.
- Joining us for a training ride -- no matter your cycling or fitness experience - everyone who commits to riding with us and training with us will be able to ride 300 miles over four days come July or something shorter of your choosing, like the MS 150 or others.
- For more information about training rides, crewing, volunteering or anything else Team Shalom related either write or call Harvey, Caroline or Jackie.
