CODE BLUE: Bike to End Homelessness
Sat, October 14, 2017, 8:30 AM – 10:00 PM PDT
We need your help!
Without your help all year round, we could not succeed in our effort to make a difference in the lives of homeless people in Sonoma County.
Code Blue is a one day bicycle ride. We believe the bicycle ride will increase awareness of homelessness and help fund homeless services in Sonoma County. Enjoy scenic views throughout Sonoma County!
The proceeds from this bike ride help fund our efforts to take care of Sonoma County’s homeless, especially during the harsh winter months. Therefore, this bicycle ride is held rain or shine.
