Basketball Hall-of-Famer and San Diego native Bill Walton is teaming up with community leaders and to host an inter-galactic initiative, Bike for Humanity, on Saturday, April 25, from 9-11 a.m.

One hundred percent of all net proceeds from the event will benefit victims of the recent Coronavirus pandemic, along with healthcare professionals who have so valiantly treated them during this devastating crisis.

Those proceeds will be distributed among four participating nonprofits, Feeding America (, the leading organization in the fight against hunger in the United States; Father Joe’s Villages (, one of the largest homeless services providers in San Diego; #GetUsPPE (, an organization that shares information and connects the community to help healthcare providers receive Personal Protective Equipment, and Champions for Health (, a San Diego-based organization whose mission is to improve community health and wellness, access to care for all and support for physicians through engaged volunteerism.

Individuals are encouraged to get out and ride their bikes for up to two hours in an area where they can practice social distancing at a minimum of 6-feet 11-inches in honor of Walton’s true height (at least the last time he was measured). Current CDC guidelines recommend a minimum of six feet of social distancing in an effort to stem the pandemic.

It is critical to note that Bike for Humanity is not a group ride and riding clusters are prohibited due to the coronavirus. Interested participants can ride anywhere in the galaxy as long as they are in a location where they can practice social distancing.

“I love my bike and I love being alive,” said Walton, a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, of his reasons for helping to create this one-of-a-kind event. “These seemingly inseparable aspects of my life are great privileges, privileges that not everybody has, even in the best of times.

“However, with that privilege comes responsibility, obligation and duty. And with the global health coronavirus crisis changing everything for everybody these days, we are doing something about and for the exacerbated challenges that so many of our communities now face, not the least of which are food and medical care.”

There is no charge to sign-up or participate in Bike for Humanity. However, there are multiple opportunities to donate and become more involved.

Participants who make a $25 contribution will receive a Bike for Humanity medal through the mail. Those who make a $50 contribution will receive a medal and a T-shirt. Participants who pledge $250 will receive the medal and T-shirt, along with a personally-signed “Thank You” photograph card from Walton. They will also be entered into an opportunity drawing for exclusive prizes, including Electra bicycles and an all-expenses-paid trip to San Diego to ride with Walton.

And for $5,000, riders will receive a medal and T-shirt, along with an all-expenses-paid trip to San Diego to ride with Walton. Details on all the packages are available here.

For people who are unable to participate on the 25th for any reason, Bike for Humanity is an ongoing initiative and outdoor enthusiasts should be proud to don their Bike for Humanity T-shirts and medals and get out and safely ride their bicycles when conditions allow. is planning a live-stream of the event featuring Walton and other people, however, it will air on a delay from 1-3 p.m. giving participants plenty of time to get home following the ride to watch.

Hi, for two years I had $95,000 in debt, including $36,420 in credit card debt. My credit score was nothing to write home about. I managed to get most of my debt removed in bankruptcy and i was left with $7,000 car loan and $51,000 in student loans. Determined not to repeat my mistakes again I was recommended by a credit consultant to contact 760PLUS CREDIT SCORE who would help fix my credit score and clear my loans she referred me to her hacker friend she has met years ago who specializes in fixing credit score. I contacted him through [email protected] the following day, it took him some time to get back to me, because he was fully book, after a while he responded and helped me out. He started from raising my credit score to 799 after which he cleared my outstanding pending bills. I bounced back quickly, I am currently on my feet and on my way to buying a house. All thanks to 760 Plus. You text : 1(304)-774-5902.

760 Plus Credit Score have proven beyond doubt to be second to none in terms of topnotch credit repair services. They did some mind-blowing works on my credit, that I think enumerating them on this public forum wouldn’t be necessary. It’s really needless having a second thought before contacting this top notch credit specialist for all kind of credit repair. After they boosted my score and brought my report back to excellent, I had to also do that of my wife and it was done in 72hours. I can comfortably recommend them ([email protected] or 1(304) -774 -5902). Contact and be bold to share your own testimony.
