I spent the majority of my childhood in the San Gabriel Valley, from feeding the ducks at Whittier Narrows to walking the trails at Santa Fe Dam. My memories of this place are filled with nostalgia and love. Moving back to the SGV as an adult, those sentiments remained, yet now they are filled with hope and ambition. When I started volunteering with ActiveSGV I had no idea it would change the course of my personal life and career. I never imagined the organization would play such a vital role in my growth and lead me back to my passion of public health. Now as a staff member, I can't help but feel inspired by colleagues who are committed to fighting the environmental injustices and health disparities our diverse communities face. While motivated, we can’t accomplish our goals alone. We need your support - that is why I am asking you to become an ActiveSGV member today!
Get involved today:
In case you missed it, we are also transitioning our brand from BikeSGV to ActiveSGV! We are shaking things up, and evolving the way we approach health and sustainability. On April 11 we are unveiling our new mission, vision, and logo and can't wait to celebrate with you at the “Every Day is Earth Day Fundraiser”!
The ActiveSGV team is incredibly appreciative of the generosity and support of our members. We will continue to provide you with new t-shirts, collectible stickers, bike rentals but more importantly, you will be part of a growing community that strives to make the San Gabriel Valley a more sustainable, equitable and liveable place to live, work and play!
