I am riding 38 miles in the Tour de Barnstable cycling event to benefit Calmer Choice, a universal mindfulness-based prevention program committed to teaching young people how to effectively and safely manage stress and resolve conflict so that they live happy, healthy and successful lives. Calmer Choice's goal is to provide skills that will diminish the risk of violence, substance abuse, and other self-destructive behaviors.
Here is a short video that explains how Calmer Choice fosters healthier communities!
The consideration of your donation is greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much!
Tour de Barnstable - Calmer Choice
The Tour de Barnstable event will be held LIVE again this year for 2022 after virtual events taking place the past two years due to the pandemic*. We are set to have a blast with a fun ride and after-party!
