SO, HOW DOES THIS WORK?
1) Contact Seattle CISPES if you want to participate in the Solidarity Cycle: [email protected] or 206.325.5494. We will then send you a registration form.
2) We need your signed registration form and $20 registration fee by Friday, June 5th. (The $20 covers all of your expenses: food, ferry fare, Solidarity Cycle t-shirt, overnight lodging, support vehicle expenses... pretty good deal, huh?) Print, sign and mail the form, along with your $20, to Seattle CISPES, or call our office to make arrangements to turn it in in person. Checks should be made to "Seattle CISPES." Also, call us if you want to pay your $20 fee with a credit card:
606 Maynard Ave. S., #252
Seattle, WA 98104
If you are already sure you will be taking part in the cycle, please let us know ASAP so we can begin to get a better estimate of how many cyclists to plan for. In any case, you must turn in your registration form and $20 by June 5th.
3) In exchange for taking part in the bike ride - and to help continue the struggle for justice and democracy in El Salvador - we ask each cyclist to raise at least $100 for Seattle CISPES. 60% of this money will be sent to fund grassroots social justice organizations that CISPES works with in El Salvador. 40% will stay here to fund our local organization. The easiest way to raise money is by asking your friends and family for pledges. We will give you a pledge sheet to help you keep track of your fundraising, and can help you come up with other fundraising ideas. Turn in your $100 (or more!) when you come to the Solidarity Cycle on the morning of Saturday, June 20th.
