Dennis Desmarais Takes on 13th Climate Ride, Riding 1,000 Miles in 6 Days to Combat Climate Change

Summer 2023


In a bold and determined effort to combat climate change and create a more sustainable future, Dennis Desmarais is gearing up for his 13th Climate Ride. This year, he is embarking on a remarkable journey, riding an astounding 1,000 miles in just six days through the picturesque landscapes of Maine and New England. Why? To raise funds for the Connecticut Chapter of the Sierra Club and Climate Ride.


Dennis has been a passionate advocate for environmental causes, raising over $78,000 throughout his previous Climate Rides. His unwavering dedication has already pushed this year's fundraising total to an impressive $14,000, and he is determined to reach his ambitious $16,000 goal this time. 


You can make a charitable, tax free donation to help him hit or exceed this year's goal of $16,000 here.


As Dennis aptly pointed out, the urgency of addressing climate change cannot be understated. Recent events like the devastating Hurricane Ian in Florida and the catastrophic wildfires in the Western USA serve as a stark reminder of the need to work towards a sustainable and green future.


Supporting Dennis's Climate Ride is an opportunity for individuals to make a tangible and meaningful impact. Donations will directly contribute to the Sierra Club's efforts to combat climate change, protect the environment, and secure our energy future.


Dennis's previous Climate Rides have been marked by challenges, including flat tires, extreme weather conditions, and mechanical issues. However, he has consistently received incredible support from his community and well-wishers. Now, Dennis is calling on everyone to rally behind him once again, ensuring that his 13th Climate Ride is a resounding success.
