Claver House Community Ride Is Saturday
Saint Louis University’s Clock Tower will serve as the starting point for the Claver House Community Ride on Saturday, Sept. 16.
Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. in front of the Center for Global Citizenship. The ride begins at 10 a.m.. Riders will have a choice of a 5- or 20-mile bike ride to support the mission of Claver House. The ride is co-sponsored by SLU’s Department of Aviation Science and the Center for Social Action.
Since opening in 1999, Claver House has served as a gathering place within the heart of the historic Ville neighborhood of North St. Louis. It serves as a place-based point of connection and collaboration, gathering people from all walks of life to know, support and empower one another.
Students, faculty, and staff from SLU were instrumental in founding Claver House and have served in a variety of capacities at the house since its inception and many have been residents. Living at Claver House offers an opportunity to live in an intentional way in solidarity with the residents of the Ville neighborhood. Volunteer opportunities include helping with Operation Read and Feed, Science Saturdays, and Claver House Summer Camp.
Participants can register at the event on Saturday or online. The event includes a supported ride, t-shirt, and lunch at Claver House. For additional information or questions, contact Stephen Belt, Ph.D., in Aviation Science.
