Join us for another special Fall book delivery to the 300+ children at Buena Vista Elementary on Thursday, October 11!
We are thrilled to announce that we are partnering up with M.L Rose Craft Beer & Burgers in Capitol View (431 11th Ave. N), the Nashville Public Library, The Nashville Sounds & “Booster”, King of Pops, Metro Nashville Police, Green Fleet Bikes, Metro Nashville Schools and will have a SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE from former Pro-cyclist, Speaker & Author, Amy Charity, for this delivery!
Amy is a Vanderbilt University Alumna, Colorado native, born in Fort Collins. She spent over 14 years in Financial Services. At the age of 34, she left the financial industry to pursue her passion and a career in professional bike racing. Amy raced all over the world and at the highest level of the sport. She was a member of the US National Team, holds a national title in the Team Time Trial and raced in the World Championships. We approached her about joining us and she graciously accepted! We are excited to have her join us!!
**NOTE: OCTOBER IS HALLOWEEN SO WE ARE GOING TO DRESS UP AS OUR FAVORITE BOOK CHARACTERS FOR THIS DELIVERY!! (While we encourage everyone to participate- it is not required to dress up.)
We will meet at 12:00PM at M.L Rose (431 11th Ave. N) to load up our books and ride bikes as a group to Buena Vista Elementary. If you do not want to ride a bike and would just like to be a volunteer reader, you can meet us to gather some books to take with you and then follow us to the school. Cyclists are welcome to register for both options. If you are riding your bike please bring a backpack to carry your books in (we have a few spares to lend) and everyone must wear a helmet. We are scheduled to arrive at the school at 1:00pm so we will roll out at approx. 12:40pm. It will be an easy 2 1/2 mile bike ride through the surrounding neighborhoods. We should be back to M.L Rose no later than 2:00pm. They will be offering great Happy Hour lunch specials so if you can, we invite you to stay and join us to help support this local business!
We are excited to share the love of reading (literacy) & cycling (healthy-living) with these students. We are looking for 8 volunteers to read a book to the pre-K, K and 1st grade classes. We invite you to invite your friends, family, co-workers, bike club members and at least someone you know that has never experienced a delivery before & join us to impact the lives of several children at Buena Vista Elementary!
As always, we will all ride together. Helmets are required.
