The ColoradoDaily posted a story the other day on CU student James Gaston about his plans to ride across the country to raise awareness and money for affordable housing.
University of Colorado senior James Gaston plans to bike nearly 4,000 miles across the country after graduation -- but this is not your typical pre-career joy ride.
Gaston will join 30 other cyclists, aged 18 to 25, and from across the country, as they bike from Portsmith, N.H., to Vancouver, British Columbia, riding nearly 70 miles a day to provide support and awareness about affordable housing efforts nationwide.
To donate to James Gaston's Bike and Build fund, go to wwwbikeandbuild.org and click on "donate," then select Gaston's name from the list of riders.
It's all part of the eighth season of Bike and Build, organized by a Philadelphia-based nonprofit group that has donated more than $2.3 million and supported more than 1,000 young adults who have cycled 4 million miles to support affordable housing projects, such as Habitat for Humanity.
