Winslow youth get rolling for fundraiser
October 16, 2012 · 8:20 AM
A dozen youth from the Winslow Cohousing Community cycled and scootered an amazing 1,143 laps on Sunday, Sept. 30 and raised $1,000 to be split evenly between the Bainbridge Island Land Trust’s Hilltop Campaign and Global Source Education’s Educulture Project.
This is the fifth annual Cohousing bike-a-thon which was inspired by Alice Gutsche-Smith, now 9, when she learned to ride her two-wheeler without training wheels.
Each year, the kids pick one or two island organizations for the fundraising effort. In past years, donations have gone to Helpline House, West Sound Wildlife Shelter and the Bainbridge Public Library.
