    Join the Christina Clarke Genco Mother’s Day Memorial Ride 

    We wanted to spread the word about this great ride for a great cause! please consider joining CW and the hundreds of other riders on mother’s day for theChristina Clarke Genco Foundation ride.

    here’s a bit of info: ”The mission of the Christina Clarke Genco Foundation is to inspire youth to find their passion and make a difference in their communities. We seek to encourage youth to channel their energies towards the development of skills and personal qualities that will enhance their life and the well being of their family and communities. We believe in empowering youth to find their passion through athletic activities, community service, and pedal power.

    Christina was on her second service trip with Bike & Build, a non-profit group dedicated to cross-country bicycle trips to benefit affordable housing when a tragic accident took her life at the age of 22. Christina’s short journey through life was driven by her passion for helping others.  She was an inspiration to hundreds of youth, nurturing, mentoring, and coaching them. She will always be remembered for her gentle spirit, athleticism, creativity, and commitment to making a difference in the world at such a young age.

    The Foundation was created to continue Christina’s legacy.”
