The Pedal On The Pier 2015 event was a huge success. Benefiting the Harold Robinson foundation, the goal of the event was to raise money to fund Camp Ubuntu, which brings over 25 inner city schools on 3 day camp retreats, Camp Ubuntu Watts-a day camp in the heart of Watts and Parenting from the Heart, a unique parenting program. UBUNTU, an ancient African word and philosophy, translates to: I am, because we are. The incredible success of Pedal on the Pier 2015 is in large part because of YOU!! So, UBUNTU! We are, because of you!!!
An outdoor physical philanthropy event with 100 + stationary bikes on the iconic Santa Monica Pier, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. 400 + riders cycle for 5 hours/100 miles with some of the city’s top cycling instructors, while 1,000 family and friends cheer them on. We have great DJ’s, musical and special guests, dancing, vendors and lots of great food and drink. POTP is a high energy, fundraising event which benefits the HAROLD ROBINSON FOUNDATION. HRF is a 501(c)(3) working to improve the lives of our city’s impoverished children by providing them with a camp retreat where they participate in diverse recreational programs that are designed to strengthen confidence, independence, build character and develop leadership skills.
The Harold Robinson Foundation was established based on the principle that each and every child, deserves opportunities, no matter where they stand on the socioeconomic ladder.HRF, provides the funding and resources to send Los Angeles’s less fortunate children to camp, in a safe and nurturing environment, far away from the stress that most of them face on a daily basis.
HRF strives to create a sense of purpose and accomplishment in each individual, while working towards building communities through communication and support for schools and families.The mission has grown from the simple hope of allowing youths to experience camp for a weekend to investing in their futures, their families, their schools and their communities.
The Pedal On The Pier event raised $822,566 dollars and the donations are still coming in. goFlow team leader Sorelle Cohen participated in the event. She had such an incredible time and can’t wait to get more involved for the next event. In the mean time, lets keep sending kids to summer camp!
