Let's Get #morekidsonbikes

We're raising money for the Berkeley HS Mountain Bike Team fundraiser led by Berkeley HS MTB.


$7,815 of $15,000 raised

52% completed. Raised by 83 donors

This fundraiser concluded on Saturday, June 2, 2018

About

The Berkeley High Mountain Bike Team was the first high school mountain bike team in the country and helped spur the growth of the NorCal League and eventually the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). We're celebrating our 20th season by supporting one of our largest teams ever - over 70 student athletes!

What I'm Raising Money For

We're raising money to help buy loaner bikes, race-day trainers and provide scholarships for student-athletes in need. All funds raised will go directly to supporting student-athletes with equipment.

Why You Should Give

The Berkeley High Team supports the development of strong minds, bodies and character through interscholastic cycling. We promote equality and are inclusive of everyone. No one is turned away from the team for lack of funds or riding ability. Everyone rides. Everyone races!

    Berkeley High School Mountain Bike Team Fundraiser

    2018-05-21T20:47:48Z

    Berkeley High School Mountain Bike Team Fundraiser Hi Friends and Family, I have emailed all of you today for a fundraiser happening for our mountain biking team at Berkeley High. This is my first year as well as Will's and Nick's third on the team. As you can imagine, there are many expenses to pay for on a biking team- clothing, gear, the bike trailer, along with the loaner bikes that kids rent out for the year if they cannot buy a bike. Along with these expenses, we have five races hosted by NorCal, the Northern California youth biking group. Every team member is encouraged to sign up, which has an entrance fee, and the team must supply food and drink for the 80 bikers on the team, along with 30-40 parents. In addition, the team is not funded for or payed for at all by the Berkeley Unified School District or Berkeley High School. The team has lots of people on it that don't have the money to enjoy a very fun and exciting sport. This fundraiser is a way to give some of my less well-off peers a chance to continue participating in a fun and exciting sport. So, whether it's ten dollars or fifty, I would really appreciate it if you could give a little money to fund my fellow teammate's favorite sport! Thank you in advance for your generosity.

    Donate To Berkeley High Mountain Bike team

    2018-03-29T16:57:56Z

    My name is Matthew Newton. This is my second year riding for the mountain bike team. This team is really important to me for many reasons. One of these reasons is getting out into nature and viewing it from a different perspective and being able to see so much in one day. You should donate to us because we are working to get more kids on bikes so they can experience the same thing. Because as you may know mountain biking is not a cheap sport. And we are technically a club so Berkeley High School gives us no funding. Therefore we have to fundraise for this all to be a possibility.
