Explore Alumni Opportunities
Just because your program is over doesn’t mean your involvement has to be. Bike & Build alumni can stay connected with the organization, the affordable housing cause, and their teammates across the world in so many different ways.
”All of a sudden you have this incredible network of people in your life, all aligned with the same values. And it’s not just riders, but hosts, families that would provide meals, organizations that let us do work for them, even though they had to put a lot of energy into coordinating us… These are all people who no matter where they came from all came together around this cause. Everybody values that spirit of going on this adventure to do that work.Kristin AndersonME2SB'13

Chris Webber Memorial Fund and Fellowship
Christopher H. Webber was a Trip Leader for Bike & Build’s 2005 Northern U.S. route and soon became the organization’s first Program Director. Chris was integral to Bike & Build’s growth and strengthened its programming through his combined passion for adventure and charitable efforts. Chris was 25 when he died of injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident in New York City in March of 2007.
To this day, Chris’s attitude, spirit, and energy inspires a fellowship to honor his dedication to Bike & Build. The award, a grant up to $20,000, funds affordable housing projects led by members of the Bike & Build family that encourage alumni to remain involved in the cause.
