OKLAHOMA CITY – July 15, 2020 – Today, CycleBar of Chisholm Creek and Norman announced a pledge to help members of our community achieve social and economic equality by donating $2,000 to the Urban League of Greater Oklahoma City. The funds come from their “We Rise As One” challenge – an initiative focused on raising money to help make needed changes in the community. We thank CycleBar for standing with us in our efforts to bring about positive change.
“We want to focus on helping out our community at this critical time with the focus on our black community in our local area,” said Barb Fitzgerald, owner of the CycleBar locations. “I was drawn to your charity because you help in every aspect of life, from the young to the old and with our desire to be part of real change and support in our communities.”
The donation will go towards the Urban League’s Back to School Bash Event, occurring on July 21-22, 2020. Urban League will be providing $50 uniform vouchers to 300 low to moderate-income students in the Greater Oklahoma City area.
The Urban League of Greater Oklahoma City was established in 1946 as an affiliate of the National Urban League and is a United Way Partner Agency. Its mission is to assist African Americans, other minorities and the poor to achieve social and economic equality. It works to accomplish its mission through advocacy, research, and program services in four major areas: workforce and career development, education and family development, housing and financial literacy, and community convening and social justice.
