Bike, Laugh, Heal: Fight Domestic Violence
On Tuesday, June 26th, NYHRC will be hosting a silent auction and evening of comedy to raise funds for the upcoming “Bike, Laugh, Heal” tour, which aims to help end domestic violence & sexual assault. The event will be held at the Caroline on 60 W 23rd street, next to our NYHRC 23rd St location.
There will be celebrity appearances, as well as performances by comedians Nikki Glaser, Jessy Kirson, Andrew T. Collin, and more. Click here for additional information and to purchase limited tickets to the silent auction.
The tour, which starts August 13th, will see Mara Marek, NYHRC 23rd St Personal Trainer, Comedian, & creator of the popular podcast Happy Never After, set off on a cross-country bike tour with her co-host Andrew Collin to do the impossible – fight domestic violence while wearing spandex.
The goal: to raise $1 million for Futures Without Violence, which will help prevent domestic violence and support survivors on their journey to safety, health, and laughter. From N.Y. to L.A., Mara and Andrew will be stopping and staging comedy shows in efforts to raise funds at safe havens throughout the country.
You can also join us at our 23rd Street location for a book signing and Meet & Greet with author Krystyna Hutchinson on the same night as the auction. From 6:00 to 6:45 PM, if you pre-purchase the book for $30, you will receive a signed copy and a photo with the author. All proceeds will support the cause. For purchasing, Venmo @bikelaughheal or pay with cash on location.
Those that cannot attend the silent auction or the book signing can still help by donating. Stay tuned for updates throughout Mara’s entire journey.
