Description


Code Blue Bicycle Ride 2018Code Blue Bicycle Ride: Canada Border to Mexico Border 2018 is a 1,850 mile bicycle fund-raiser sponsoring riders to ride down the pacific coast to increase awareness of homelessness and to raise funds that support individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Sonoma County.


Catholic Charities

The funds raised during Code Blue Bicycle Ride: Canada Border to Mexico Border 2018 are critical because they are unrestricted. This type of funding allows Catholic Charities to better meet the needs of those experiencing homelessness with flexible funding. Last year the unrestricted funds raised paid for critical supplies during cold and wet winter months (i.e. tarps, blankets, socks, pocket warmers, gloves, hats, etc.). This was in addition to the distribution of donated coats, sleeping bags and other items collected. Funds raised last year had been used for much needed operational supplies (propane, patio heaters, hand-warmers, bus tickets, etc.). All proceeds are used to directly address the immediate needs of individuals and families experiencing homelessness and living on streets in Sonoma County. Any funds not used are carried-over to fund winter outreach efforts the next winter.
