Chris Webber Memorial Fund & Ride

Christopher H. Webber was a Trip Coordinator for Bike & Build's 2005 Northern U.S. route, and became the organization's first Program Director in the fall of 2005.  As Program Director, Chris helped oversee Bike & Build's growth and strengthened its programming through his combined passion for sport and adventure, and affordable housing and charitable efforts.

Chris carried himself with great attitude, spirit, and energy for his work, family, and friends.  He had completed two cross-country bicycle trips, was an expert skier, and had travelled widely through Europe, Australia, and North America.  Chris was 25 when he died of injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident in New York City in March of 2007.

The Webber Family and Bike & Build have formed a fund to administer an annual Chris Webber Memorial Fellowship to honor Chris's spirit, and his involvement in and contributions to Bike & Build.  The award - an annual grant of up to $20,000 - will fund affordable housing projects involving members of the Bike & Build family.  The fellowship is supported through private contributions, and through Bike & Build's annual Chris Webber Memorial Ride.
