Team Smith is Riding for a Cause

by Team Smith

Supporting: Restoring Our Cities Registration 2022 for Great Lakes Urban Restoration Network


Campaign has ended.


Who is Team Smith? We are Eric, Martha, Zoe (13) and Aiden (10). We also have three animal friends, Kai, Kipper, and Maya. 

The name "Smith" comes from the metal workers of old. Our family motto, which we all helped come up with, is, "Forged for Good". Riding at the Restoring Our Cities fundraising event is one way for us to live our motto. 

We ask you to think about where you'd be today if you didn't have family, friends, and neighbors to encourage you along life's journey, to connect you to opportunities, and to add belonging and meaning to your life.

Great Lakes Urban is building a more connected world, because we want everyone to have every opportunity to achieve their highest potential. The best place to start is by building strong neighborhoods and flourishing communities.

This is the cause that we're riding for on September 10. We hope you'll join our team and help transform lives and neighborhoods!
