Cory's Ride Updates - November 2023 Cory’s Ride Looking Forward To 2024
We’re thrilled to provide an inspiring update on Cory’s Ride and a look forward to 2024. 25 students from Marin City/Sausalito and San Rafael graduated from the program. They received their hard-earned, brand-new bicycles during Thanksgiving week, marking the largest group of participants since the program began in 2020.
Those who completed all the riding safety and bike repair classes took their bikes and equipment home, armed with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to not only navigate safely but to fix and maintain their new mounts. To accommodate the sizable student group, two experienced high school interns were recruited to assist in instructing classes.
“Being a part of Cory’s Ride, which provides and advocates for the same things I needed when I first started riding, makes me feel whole,” expressed Carlos Hernandez, Cory’s Ride Intern and Senior at Branson High.
Manuel Guevara, our second intern and Senior at Marin Academy shared his experience, stating, “Seeing students come into Cory’s Ride reserved and shy, only to witness them laughing and creating a real sense of community after a few meetups, has made teaching a wonderful experience. I know every student is excited and happy to be here.”
As we express gratitude during this holiday season, our heartfelt thanks extend to everyone contributing to Cory’s Ride. Your support has not only brought smiles to the faces of these young individuals but has also strengthened the connections within and between our communities.
Looking forward to 2024, we are eager to build on this momentum and continue our mission to create opportunities for growth, unity, and FUN through Cory’s Ride. Together, we can continue to make a lasting impact on the lives of our community members.
Want to help Cory;s Ride expand to reach more students in Marin? The County of Marin is putting $2.5 million up for grabs through Participatory Budgeting (PB) online voting, and Cory’s Ride could receive an $88,000 grant with your support.
