The Genesee Community Charter School’s 6th graders are raising funds to help support their travel to learn directly about four great bicycing cities in the USA. The four cities selected are, Austin TX, Portland OR, Boulder CO and Madison/Milwaukee WI.
The class will split up into four groups. Each group will travel to one of the selected cities to study their bicycling infrastructure. The class will present their findings to the Rochester Community at a public meeting in 2013. Several members of the RCA are advisers for the year-long class project.
To support the fund raising effort, anyone shopping at the Pittsford Plaza’s Barnes & Noble store on Friday November 16, from 6 -9 PM can simple identify themselves as helping the school fundraiser. All food, drink and store products purchased are part of the program. Up to 20% of total sales identified will be donated to the fundraiser. Look for the entertainment provided by the school’s 6th grade class.
