Last year, in response to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, JCC Krakow crafted a remote Virtual Ride For The Living experience so that people could still participate in this meaningful event from the comfort and safety of their own community.

The Global Challenge combines fitness and Holocaust education to help support JCC Krakow and survivors around the world.

We are participating as a DC Jewish community, and we want you to join us in the ride! Your $18 registration includes access to the welcome ceremony featuring local Holocaust speaker Manny Mandel, a Ride for the Living Sport-Tek T-shirt, snacks, and a water bottle at our pit-stop on your ride. The routes include some busy roads and some trails. All riders will conclude around noon. Be a part of this global event for awareness.

“I am joining RFTL Global Challenge to do my part to repair the world: raise awareness about the Holocaust, honor survivors, and support Jewish life.”
— Lukasz, 2021 RFTL GC Participant

Don’t have a bike? There are several Capital Bikeshare docks near the JCC; you can find one here. Or you can join us every Sunday in June on your Peloton using #DCRFTL 

SAFETY: All family members must be wearing masks at all times while on EDCJCC property. You will be asked to sign a community health pledge before the event, which can be found here.
