We Are a Trail Blazers Community Partner!
How about this for some exciting news, shared just in time for Transportation Night?
Yesterday, the Portland Trail Blazers announced the team’s five nonprofit community partners for the next two seasons. The Community Cycling Center is thrilled to be a community partner, along with four other incredible organizations!
Mychal Tetteh, our CEO, shared his thoughts on the partnership:
“The Trail Blazers are much more than our city’s home team. The Blazers have been a powerful force for change in our communities through partnerships, works, and philanthropy. The Community Cycling Center is thrilled to embark on this two-year partnership with the Trail Blazers Community Foundation. We will be joining the other Foundation Partners who all have a track record of incredible work in our communities–Adaptive Sports Northwest, Black Parent Initiative, Girls Inc. and Latino Network. Together, we will connect more people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to their communities and each other through the power of bicycling. It’s going to be an exciting couple of years.”
The Portland Trail Blazers chose its community partners based on the critical services they each provide to kids and families throughout Oregon and SW Washington.
The partnership with the Trail Blazers will include promotion through the Trail Blazers Foundation 5050 raffle, youth basketball initiatives, player appearances and staff volunteer events.
