LA to San Francisco Bicycle Tour to End Polio by District 5280 Interactors
Spring Break is usually a time for students to go to the beach, go on vacation, or just spend time with family and friends, and having a fun time free of school studies. Well, not so for three Interactors and their faculty advisor from the Hawthorne HS Interact Club! Club members Jose Diego, Sebastian Gonzalez, Chris Rendon, and Advisor Huy Hoang, are cycling LA to San Francisco on Spring Break to raise funds for End Polio.
Their goal, on this 8-day adventure, is to ride 500 miles from the Manhattan Beach Pier to the Golden Gate Bridge and raise $5000. This amount will provide vaccines for 8000 children in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria. You can support them by going to GoFundMe and pledging with a contribution. WE ARE THIS CLOSE to ending polio worldwide. Won’t you join us to make this happen!
