Choose Love is Gearing Up for Bike for Humanity
Benefiting Choose Love and victims of Coronavirus and healthcare workers.
Saturday, April 25, 2020
Get outside and Have a Lot of Fun for a good cause. The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement is joining Basketball Hall of Famer Bill Walton and Events.com for an inter-galactic initiative, Bike for Humanity, on Saturday, April 25, 2020 from 9-11 a.m. PT. Register with Choose Love for exclusive benefits (See below) plus a portion of donations using this link will benefit Choose Love For Schools.
Individuals are encouraged to get out and ride their bikes for up to two hours in an area where they can practice social distancing at a minimum of 6’ 11” in honor of Bill’s true height (at least the last time he was measured). Current CDC guidelines recommend a minimum of six feet of social distancing in an effort to stem the pandemic. It is CRITICAL to note that Bike for Humanity is NOT a group ride and riding clusters are PROHIBITED due to the Coronavirus. Interested participants can ride anywhere in the galaxy as long as they are in a location where they can practice social distancing.
There is no charge to sign-up or participate in Bike for Humanity. However, there are multiple opportunities to donate and become more involved.

One hundred percent (100%) of all net proceeds from the event will benefit victims of the Coronavirus pandemic, along with healthcare professionals who have so valiantly treated them during this devastating crisis. Those proceeds will be distributed among four participating nonprofits, Feeding America (feedingamerica.org), the leading organization in the fight against hunger in the United States; Father Joe’s Villages (my.neighbor.org), one of the largest homeless services providers in San Diego; #GetUsPPE (getusppe.org), an organization that shares information and connects the community to help healthcare providers receive Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and Champions for Health (championsforhealth.org), a San Diego-based organization whose mission is to improve community health and wellness, access to care for all and support for physicians through engaged volunteerism.
“I love my bike and I love being alive,” said Walton, a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, of his reasons for helping to create this one-of-a-kind event. “These seemingly inseparable aspects of my life are great privileges, privileges that not everybody has, even in the best of times. However, with that privilege comes responsibility, obligation and duty. And with the global health Coronavirus crisis changing everything for everybody these days, we are doing something about and for the exacerbated challenges that so many of our communities now face, not the least of which are food and medical care.”
