We are excited to share that Philadelphia Magazine has named Caitlin Thompson as a Be Well Philly Health Hero semifinalist for 2019. This competition will award $15,000 to the winner’s non-profit organization (Little Bellas for Caitlin) and $2,500 to the next 2 finalists’ organizations. This is where you come in. The next step in the competition is a month-long contest where everyone can vote daily through October 1st. Please join us in voting for Caitlin every day this month. We know that Caitlin is one of the many health heroes in our city (last year she was awarded with the Bicycle Coalitions Youth Cycling Award) and we are excited to see her hard work recognized through this competition. Caitlin founded the Philly chapter of Little Bellas in 2016 and has recruited many Laser Cats to participate as mentors over the years. Over four years almost 70 girls have participated in Little Bellas program in Philly. With the help of your daily voting, we can all help Caitlin win up to $15,000 for Little Bellas. This money will help get even more girls on bikes in Philly and around the country.
In summary, vote daily (through oct. 1st) here to help Caitlin win $15,000 for Little Bellas.
We kicked off the off season* this past weekend with a team meeting, enjoying vegan chili from our team chef, Sam, and lots of other yummy treats. It was great to celebrate all of the fantastic activities that we’ve done this past season and plan for 2019.
