The Chinese Progressive Association's Chinatown Bike-a-thon is a green and healthy fundraiser to support youth leadership and a brighter future in our community.  Bike 16 miles along the Charles River (8 mile route also available for novices and families with young children). Complimentary 2015 Bike-a-thon T-shirt and picnic lunch provided! Adult riders must raise a minimum of $70 to participate, student riders $35.

All proceeds go to CPA's youth leadership development program, the Chinese Youth Initiative (CYI). CYI provides internship opportunities to high school youth from the Greater Boston area, combining an Asian American Studies curriculum with hands-on community service and organizing projects. Over the past 21 years, CYI youth have played crucial roles in the campaign for a Chinatown library, voter registration drives, support for immigrant workers’ rights, establishing the first Chinatown Youth Platform, advocating for public transit and much more.

Location: Boston Common, Corner of Beacon and Charles Streets
