Next month in Charlottesville, VA I’ll be getting on my bike for the fifth time in four years for another 3-day, 300-mile Chefs Cycle ride to support our No Kid Hungry campaign. If you’ve ever seen me ride you’ll know it’s not because I’m a natural athlete. No one has ever confused me for that! Rather, I’m riding again because I’ve seen the impact of the millions of dollars we’re raising on the lives of the kids that Share Our Strength serves. Our success in adding 3 million kids to school breakfast programs has transformed their health, educational achievement, and lives in countless ways.
This inaugural east coast ride has been added to meet popular demand among chefs and restaurateurs eager to share their strength. If you already contributed earlier this year to my previous ride in Santa Rosa, thank you and please feel free to ignore this note.
