Riding across the country, for affordable housing

Fairfield native, Dan Halpert, a 2008 graduate of Fairfield Warde High School and member of the Class of 2012 at Tufts University, is riding his bicycle cross country to raise awareness for affordable housing.

Halpert, along with 30 other like-minded individuals, are participating with a group called Bike and Build. The group began its journey on June 13 from Providence, R.I., and is due to arrive in Seattle, Wash., on Aug. 21.

In addition to cycling, the group builds homes en route.


In order to participate, Halpert was required to raise $4,500 in donations for affordable housing projects. Cumulatively, the group has raised $167, 744.


Donations are still welcome on Halpert’s donation page.
