A benefit for the Harold Robinson Foundation.

100 miles! 100 bikes! 100 teams!
Together we hope to raise $1 million to send inner city kids to camp!

In 2013, my youngest son Ben began attending Canyon Creek Summer Camp and it soon became his favorite place on earth.  Soon after, and completely on his own volition, he started volunteering for the non–profit organization tied to the camp, The Harold Robinson Foundation (HRF).  HRF provides camp programs to inner-city, under-served children throughout the course of the year and Ben has participated in multiple weekend camp retreats that bring these children to camp for a life changing experience.  Due to his involvement, my wife and I have attended many of the weekend closing ceremonies.  Each time we visit Camp Ubuntu, it brings us so much joy to see not only the impact the experience has on our 13-year old, but also to hear how the program alters and improves the thinking of the students, their parents, and all the teachers that participate.  

In addition to Ben’s personal involvement with HRF that will continue throughout the years ahead, I was humbled and honored when the Founders asked me to join the Board this year, a request I gladly accepted.  Ben and I certainly understand the importance of attending summer camp from the carefree hours spent playing sports and swimming, to hanging out with friends and not having to worry about your safety, to breathing the clean, fresh air and being surrounded by the beauty of nature.  Sadly, the children that attend Camp Ubuntu only get to experience this due to the generous giving from people like you.

Therefore, Ben, along with his two life-long friends, and myself will once again ride 100 miles in 5 hours to raise money to offset the cost of these camp programs.  I would be so grateful if you would click the link to the right and make a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION that will help us meet our team goal.  

I know there are a million things to contribute to, and I'm asking that you contribute to this because of the difference it makes in our city.  HRF works with children from all the public schools in the Watts area of Los Angeles.  Many of the kids we have met live in one-parent homes, have family members that are incarcerated, lost loved ones through gang violence or drugs, live with family members other than their parents, or worse, live in the foster care system.  The resources seem to be less available in the inner city than where Ben lives, just 30 miles away.  HRF has been able to service over 10,000 kids in the past 6 years and with our help, they are looking to continue for the next 10 years!  HRF brings families and communities together in a unique way that promotes community building at the most basic levels!   They also provide a summer day camp that is free of charge to children that live in the Watts area.  The day camp will serve 200 kids a day this year for 6 weeks straight!
