Alex’s TransAmerica Ride for the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank

Support Alex Maitre, newly retired U.S. Navy Commander, as he bicycles across the country from the East Coast to the Pacific Northwest with the goal of raising vital funds and awareness for the San Diego Food Bank. Alex’s goal is to raise $5,000 for the Food Bank, which would provide 25,000 meals to San Diegans in need.

Maitre will be setting off on his 4,230 mile bicycle ride on the TransAmerica Trail starting Saturday, June 16  in Yorktown, Virginia and ending his cross-country journey in Astoria, Oregon.


Donate Online Through His Virtual Food Drive

The best way to donate in support of Alex’s journey is online through Alex’s custom Virtual Food Drive webpage. For every $1 donated, 5 meals will be provided by the Food Bank to local families in need.

Follow His Journey

At every stop, Alex will post information and photos on his community Facebook page along with donation updates until he ends his journey in Astoria with the goal to raise enough money for 25,000 meals.
