NOLA to Angola raised over $1,750 on GiveNOLA Day, the 24-hour fundraiser hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to support local non-profits. A heartfelt thank you to all who donated to our fundraising effort.
After modifying the ride in response to COVID-19, the October 2023 ride will return to its traditional three-day format, where riders camp overnight on the journey from New Orleans to the Angola State Prison. Our GiveNOLA Day funds will be used to purchase camping equipment and bikes to lend to riders without those resources. Your donations will make the ride more accessible for people who are formerly-incarcerated, who have a diversity of abilities, or who may be new to cycling altogether and still want to participate.
