Biking Lake Michigan to #SaveTheGreatLakes

Friends and family,

We're riding 600+ miles around Lake Michigan this summer to draw attention and raise money to support the Sierra Club Illinois' local work to #SaveTheGreatLakes.

The Trump Administration has proposed an agenda that threatens our Great Lakes. Proposed drastic cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency, including 100% of the funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), cuts to science and enforcement efforts, and policy rollbacks that threaten Great Lakes water quality all threaten this source of drinking water and priceless ecosystem.

We'll be biking to a number of GLRI sites around Lake Michigan to see just how much of a tremedous success Great Lakes cleanup efforts have been. The GLRI program and work of the EPA has protected our drinking water, created thousands of good jobs, protected public health, and kept beaches and fisheries open, supporting a way of life for millions of people.

We all need to do our part to protect our Great Lakes. Mike and I are riding around Lake Michigan - and we hope you'll support our efforts to #SaveTheGreatLakes.

Our goal is to raise $2000, so please help us reach our goal. And when you do, let us know why you care about the Great Lakes in the “Words of Encouragement” box. We would love to hear from you!

Oh, and don't forget to also sign the Great Lakes Pledge here: https://www.addup.org/campaigns/save-the-great-lakes-from-the-trump-administration

Thanks so much!
Kady McFadden and Mike Elliott!

P.S. Thanks for helping us reach our $2000 goal!
