Ride or Walk to End Gun Violence

Saturday, June 26, 2021, Virtual

We saw a surge in gun violence in 2020, an epidemic within the COVID-19 pandemic. This trend has not yet abated in 2021, but there is hope. Join us virtually as we hear from voices of change.

Steve Kerr

This year, we are honored to have former NBA player and now Golden State Warriors coach, Steve Kerr, with us for a virtual discussion with Congressman Mike Thompson, moderated by Dr. Mark Shapiro of Explore The Space podcast.

Rock the Ride was created as a way for the community to get involved by using their voice (and feet) to raise funds for local and national nonprofit organizations addressing critical issues on gun violence. The power of our collective voice is what will make the difference to keep our nation a safer, more civil and kinder place to live, thrive and stay alive.

The Event

Choose from a challenging 50-mile bike ride alongside Lake Hennessey, a 25-mile rolling bike ride on the Napa Valley floor, a 10-mile spin from Yountville heading south, or a 3-mile walk in the storybook town of Yountville.

Following our morning rides and walk, don't miss our burritos & bubbles brunch at the Yountville North Park, where we will have the opportunity to meet our non-profit partners and hear from our keynote speaker (to be announced) about making a difference in our collective mission to prevent gun violence.
