“From East 2 West” ….One Man’s Inspiring bike journey.
Hello, my name is Kory Piorkowski and I’m a 24 year old college student with big goals and big dreams. I’m creating this once-in-a-lifetime documentary to educate people in local communities about the benefits of “going green” and living a healthier lifestyle, both for themselves and the environment.
I realize child obesity is higher than it’s ever been in the USA. I want to decrease that number tremendously and educate those how to live healthier. I want to do this by riding a bike, an alternative method of transportation, which is healthier for the rider as well as the environment. It's also free of charge.
I’ll be riding my Fuji Cross 3.0 tour pedal bike from Bar Harbor, Maine to Seattle, Washington in hopes of achieving my goals. Life is too short and I want to make a difference for the better so I created this non profit organization to do just that. We will participate in community service and present each lower income town that we stop at with a check to help improve school supplies and playgrounds, and to create local organic school gardens! Please help support my cause and together we can bring a better and healthier life to those around us! Thanks
