Bike, Laugh, Heal: Kickoff Recap
On the night of June 26th, NYHRC presented the Bike, Laugh, Heal tour’s kickoff in an effort to fundraise Mara Marek’s cross-country bike and comedy tour, which aims to raise $1 million for Domestic and Sexual Abuse victims.
Buoyed by education, laughter and reflection, the event had Mara and celebrity guests put comedy toward a good cause: shedding light on the plight of victims and survivors everywhere.
The night began with Kelly Levesque’s live musical performance, followed by Nikki Glaser and Jessie Kirson’s comedy routines that were as hilarious as they were honest.
Indeed, honesty and authenticity were the prevailing themes of the performances, but are also the spirit of the tour and its mission: to break down the shrouds that allow this crisis to exist, and inspire people everywhere to take up the battle against abuse.
Domestic violence can be stopped, and all of the proceeds Mara raises in her comedy crusade of spreading awareness will contribute to that goal. Those that were not able to make the event can still help! Click here to find out how.
