Donate to the L.A. Pumptrack Project and Win a Santa Cruz Hightower

The Grow Cycling Foundation is raising money until April 23

The “Grow Funds for Grow Cycling” campaign is about all of us working together to raise funds for the Grow Cycling Foundation, which was founded to create opportunities to make cycling more diverse and inclusive through community building and career development in the cycle industry.

One of the first projects is located in Los Angeles, one of the most diverse cities in the world, where they will be building a 30,000 square foot pumptrack. Once the physical pumptrack is built, they will provide education, access, and opportunities at this new community hub that will directly address the barriers that underserved groups face. They will start in North America and expand globally, because inclusive community building is a global need.

  • Every $5 donation enters you into the running to win this SYNDICATE-spec Hightower CC (for example: $20 = 4 entries)
  • 100% of your contribution will go straight to the Grow Cycling Foundation.
  • The winner will be drawn on April 23rd, 2021.
