Community & Neighborhood Improvement Project

Our mission is to make the Southside of Chicago a place that is a fun, healthy, and safe place to live, work, and play.

Volunteering for our events allows you to support our work and meet others who value healthy transportation.

We want more people choosing transportation options that are healthy, fun and environmentally-friendly.
