Wheel TO wheel

Liz Strathy and Nick Merrill will travel over 1,400 miles on a tandem bike, from the Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel to the Seattle Great Wheel, over the course of 12 days. All proceeds raised will support the A PLUS Youth Program. This is the third event of its kind for Liz and Nick, whose energy knows no bounds, and who have previously completed running challenges to raise funds to both build wells and an orphanage in Uganda. The Wheel to Wheel Event will allow A PLUS to purchase a new fleet of vans for its transportation program. Over the course of the calendar year, the A PLUS vans travel over 22,000 miles, picking up members from over 50 schools in the greater Seattle area. The transportation service is a critical component of A PLUS because it provides members access to the academics, mentorship, and sports programming at the A PLUS facility. We would like to thank Brotherton Cadillac for their support of the Wheel to Wheel Event and helping A PLUS secure new vans! More sponsorship opportunities are available.
