Boise GreenBike is once again proud to sponsor Cranksgiving, a Thanksgiving-themed scavenger hunt on bicycles that helps feed families in need.
On Saturday, November 23, teams of participants will use bicycles to gather a list of items to fill Thanksgiving food boxes. Boise GreenBike gives the food boxes to St. Vincent de Paul for distribution to families in need throughout the Treasure Valley. Last year, 43 food boxes were distributed.
In an effort to grow the good, Boise GreenBike is also teaming up with Cauze, a charitable giving app, to help 17 local charities that provide food, shelter, clothing and medical assistance to families and individuals in need. Each team will choose a charity from the list to support along the way. Cauze will match all donations.
To make Cranksgiving accessible to more people personal bikes will be allowed in the event, with the stipulation that EACH TEAM MUST INCLUDE AT LEAST ONE BOISE GREENBIKE. For every GreenBike in use, the participant will get a $20 credit in the GreenBike network.
Instead of an entry fee, each rider should bring money to purchase the Thanksgiving food items. Teams of riders will get a manifest listing the food items to be collected as well as completing
