Wildflyer Coffee Enters Powderhorn 24 to Raise Funds for Their Work Creating Employment Ops for Youth Experiencing Homelessness/Housing Instability

Wildflyer Coffee is a nonprofit coffee company that exists to create employment opportunities for youth experiencing homelessness and housing instability.

They're participating in the August 2 - 3 Powderhorn 24 race, with a group of 12 cycling enthusiasts and Wildflyer supporters riding on behalf of their mission.  They'll be pedaling furiously for 24 hours to get in as many laps as possible to raise funds for Wildflyer Coffee, and are requesting individuals to pledge either a certain amount per lap, or a flat fee if preferred.

How does this work?  Pledge a specified dollar amount per lap completed (or a flat amount) on the team page.  Sit back while the team cycles for 24 hours. After the race is done your pledge will be collected.

All funds raised go towards Wildflyer's employment and life skills training program providing support for youth aged 16-24 experiencing homelessness and housing instability in our community.

There's a chance Wildflyer's coffee cart will be parked by Gold Medal Park during National Night Out on August 6, which would be a good opportunity to learn more about their work.
