🗣️Let’s show some love for Event Coordinator, Natasha Coleman, who completed her first-ever Pelotonia ride last weekend! 🎉

Natasha’s journey in her own words:

24 mile gang…WHEW I’m so proud of myself! On Saturday I had the opportunity to ride in Pelotonia.

I’ve been wanting to ride in Pelotonia for some time now and when I finally mustered up the courage to do so, the pandemic happened.

Saturday was finally MY day! I had a smooth ride until I got to the last 4 miles. They almost got me, but I persevered. When I hit the 4 mile marker the music gods must have known I needed some motivation cuz this is what played from my speakers (in that order):

1. - Ready or Not
2. - Hustle Hard
3. - Savage Remix
4. - California Love

And from there on out I was moving!

The inclines were my Achilles heel, but I’m happy to share that I only walked my bike up ☝🏾 hill 😅. I really rode from North Bank Park to Pickerington North High School! 👏🏾💪🏾🥇

Thank you to all of my supporters. You are the real MVP’s!! Special shout out to and Roll: Bicycle Co for their loaner bicycle program.

This ride was dedicated to all those who have lost their battle with cancer, those who are fighting cancer, and those who have survived cancer! 🚴🏾‍♀️💚🚴🏾‍♀️💚

💖 VOLUNTEERISM ALERT ‼️

You’re invited to join the community on Saturday, June 17 for a celebration in honor of Juneteenth! The near east side of Columbus is home to Black historical significance of Black cultural expression and production. The buildings tell stories of the people, culture, art, struggle, economics, and more. Juneteenth offers the US an opportunity to celebrate this rich history and tell new stories of freedom, liberation and inspiration.

The mission for Juneteenth On The Ave is to use the now nationally recognized holiday as a platform to acknowledge our history, celebrate the end of chattel slavery and most importantly inspire continued action toward freedom through celebration, cultural expression, and education.

Whether it's assisting with set-up and tear-down or engaging with community members during the celebration, there are volunteer opportunities for everyone courtesy of our friends at Besa:

• Help Set-Up for Juneteenth on the Ave Celebration! (8 AM - 12 PM) - https://impact.besa.org/projects/1253?event=8047
• Be an Ambassador for Juneteenth on the Ave Celebration! (11:30 AM - 3 PM) - https://impact.besa.org/projects/2532?event=8049
• Be an Ambassador for Juneteenth on the Ave Celebration! (2:30 PM - 6 PM) - https://impact.besa.org/projects/2532?event=8050
• Help Close Down Juneteenth on the Ave Celebration! (4:30 PM - 8 PM) - https://impact.besa.org/projects/1261?event=8048

🤩 As a thank you for supporting this incredible event, you will receive a $12 food voucher to use during the event and a Juneteenth on the Ave volunteer t-shirt!
