A Message From Katrina McCree
Please join me on the ride to raise funds to feed the homeless.
Homelessness is a public health crisis. Individuals experiencing chronic homelessness are significantly more likely to be food insecure. This population faces extreme challenges in maintaining a nutritious diet, and often relies on meals from soup kitchens and shelters that lack essential nutrients. A proper diet can improve many health issues, such as hypertension, obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. A more nutritious diet can also improve mental health and reduce substance use.
About This Campaign
More than 10,000 Detroit residents experienced homelessness in 2019, living on the streets and in shelters for lack of safe, affordable, and permanent housing. Those suffering from homelessness are often victims of other issues including chronic health conditions, mental illness, drug addiction, and abuse. Individuals experiencing homelessness are food insecure and often face challenges in maintaining a nutritional diet relying on meals provided in shelters, such as NSO’s Detroit Healthy Housing Center.
We are looking to raise funds to cover one year of food support.
For the first time, cyclists can ride 16-miles to raise money virtually anytime and anywhere. Cyclists can take their own route, ride indoors or outdoors, atop a traditional bike or a smart bike trainer, on their favorite bike path or virtual bicycle app.
The registration fee is $35/person. All registered cyclists will receive an NSO Handlebars for the Homeless high-performance T-shirt and raffle entry. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available.
