Traverse Tompkins started in the fall of 2020 as a unique fundraiser to support The History Center in Tompkins County. Executive Director Benjamin Sandberg biked all around the county, live streaming videos exploring historical points of interest in each municipality. His challenge was to ride as many miles as possible in a single 24-hour period.
This year we’re expanding Traverse Tompkins – Facing Floods Fundraiser! Learn more at thehistorycenter.net/traverse-tompkins
and donate to support Ben’s 9/24 ride at charity.pledgeit.org/FacingFloods
In addition to Ben’s 24-hour ride on September 24th (Sponsored in part by SERVPRO of Tompkins & Tioga Counties), we’re asking more cyclists, runners, and riders to join our fundraising efforts! Riders can join sections of the route with Ben, or make their own path with the Facing Floods free roam PocketSights tour. Details on registering to ‘Ride with Us’ are on the Pledgeit platform.
As part of this community effort we are also seeking CITIZEN ARCHIVISTS to help expand our flood collections! From September 23rd – 26th, we’re asking folks across Tompkins County to take photographs of waterways and systems in Tompkins County. From your favorite lookout spot to the creek that travels through your neighborhood, we need the help of all citizen archivists in creating a photographic collection for future generations in Tompkins County! As our community faces more dramatic impacts of extreme weather, the landscape of our home will change, and change quickly. Contact email@example.com if you’d like to participate as a classroom or community group!
Join our team during the last weekend in September to preserve this moment in ecological time
