Fundraising never tasted so good. On Thursday, May 22, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Atlantans can raise funds for Atlanta Bicycle Coalition simply by dining at any Atlanta-area Chipotle. The fundraiser takes place during May’s National Bike Month.

To participate in the fundraiser, Atlantans must visit www.atlantabike.org/chipotle to print the flyer or save it on their smartphones.  Chipotle guests must show the flyer at checkout to ensure 50 percent goes to Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. 

After the fundraiser, Chipotle will give 50 percent of the proceeds up to $10,000 to Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. 

The money raised will go towards creating a healthier, more livable Atlanta by making it safer, easier, and more attractive to bicycle for fun, fitness, and transportation. Projects of the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition benefitting from the funding will include Atlanta Streets Alive, an open streets initiative, and the Earn a Bike program for underserved youth.

“Chipotle’s emphasis on healthy, local, organic food complements biking – a healthy, local, organic form of recreation and transportation – perfectly. We’re so pleased to have the opportunity to promote both with this fundraiser,” said Rebecca Serna, Executive Director of the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition.

Its nice of them to help a charity but I will no longer being supporting their restaurant or any of the affiliations they have due to their new anti-gun policy. I know there are people who take their carrying to an extreme, but it is well within the law for people to carry in GA & they should recognize that, not the couple who act like fools to draw attention.
