This summer, UC Davis student Breana Hill is joining Bike & Build, a national nonprofit committed to raising money and awareness for affordable housing. She will ride her bicycle across the country with a team of 30 other young adults on the North Carolina-to-San Diego route.

Hill will begin her journey on May 13 in Nags Head, N.C. Over the subsequent 10 weeks, the team will pedal an average of 69 miles per day to arrive at San Diego on July 21.

Along the way, the riders will participate in 14 volunteer build days with different affordable housing organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Rebuilding Together and small local housing nonprofits to help build affordable homes for families in need. They also will advocate for the need for affordable homes for all Americans in the many host communities and pass-through towns along the way.

Hill must raise at least $4,500 to support the trip. Much of that money is then donated to affordable housing organizations. The 2013 North Carolina-to-San Diego team donated $63,000 and organizers hope to exceed that total this year.

To support Hill, visit http://bikeandbuild.org/rider/7202 or mail a check payable to “Bike & Build” with Breana Hill in the memo to Bike & Build, 6153 Ridge Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19128.

“We are deeply proud of riders like Breana who are so committed to the affordable housing cause that she is willing to raise much-needed funds and spend over two months biking across the country,” said Justin Villere, Bike & Build’s director of operations and outreach. “Bike & Build provides the opportunity, but it is the riders who make the lasting impact in so many communities.”

The North Carolina-to-San Diego route is one of eight cross-country trips Bike & Build offers each summer. In total, roughly 250 18- to-28-year-old riders will see and experience first-hand the affordable housing need in this country. Riders will sleep in local churches, community centers and schools, and will rely on the generosity of hundreds of community members for food, showers and other necessities.
