NorCal Solar becomes a beneficiary of Climate Ride 2014!Climate_Ride_Logo
And our own Elaine Hebert will ride Climate Ride

Support her, NorCal Solar, and Climate Ride!

Climate Ride is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that organizes life-changing charitable events (bike rides and hikes) to raise awareness and support sustainability, clean energy, active transportation, and other environmental causes. The rides and hikes are fully-supported multi-day events around the country.

In February, Climate Ride added NorCal Solar as a beneficiary to receive funds. Participating cyclists and hikers choose up to 5 beneficiary organizations to whom to donate the dollars they raise.

NorCal Solar's own Board Member and Past President (and avid bicyclist) Elaine Hebert will ride Climate Ride California May 17-20, starting in San Francisco, traveling through the Napa wine country, and ending in Sacramento (where Elaine lives). YOU CAN HELP by supporting Elaine and NorCal Solar via, or sign up to ride in one of the events and choose NorCal Solar as a beneficiary. The Midwest and East Coast bike rides take place later in the year (so does the one hike in 2014, but it is full). You can choose NorCal Solar as your beneficiary for any of those events.
