Bike and Build stops by, Anything Goes Open Mic Mondays at the Buttonwood Tree

Last Monday at Anything Goes Open Mic down at the Buttonwood Tree we had the great pleasure of meeting Rebecca and Rachel. Two cyclists from Bike and Build  traveling across the country to raise money for Habitat for Humanity, and awareness for the importance of affordable housing. Out of all the many wonderful places in Middletown they chose the Buttonwood Tree. They said, " The Buttonwood Tree was the coolest place to visit while in Middletown!"

It takes 9,000 calories a day to fuel these riders as they tackle hills and hundreds of miles a day! We'd like to wish them a safe and happy journey. Thank you, for your hard work and stopping by to educate us! For more information about Bike and Build follow the link bellow where you can also track the cyclists.

"Bike & Build organizes cross-country bicycle trips which benefit affordable housing groups. Specifically, we fund projects planned and executed by young adults.Over the past 8 seasons we have donated more than $2.7MM; built for more than 80,000 hours; pedaled over 5MM miles; and engaged more than 1250 young adults in spreading the word about the affordable housing crisis in America."
