Wilton High School senior Nick Koleszar will ride in the Breakaway Benefit this Saturday at A Villa Louisa in Bolton, Conn., to raise money to support youth and school cycling programs for the Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program (CCAP).

In 2016, Koleszar joined a local cycling team, the Westport-based Sherpa Junior Team, a local branch of CCAP. After training and learning the technical aspects of racing, he joined the CCAP's Junior Travel Team in 2017 and continues to race with the group this year.

CCAP’s mission is to ensure that Connecticut's youth and their families have access and exposure to an organized state-wide youth cycling league.

On his donor page, Koleszar writes, “Together we are making an incredible difference in the lives of thousands of young people through the sport of cycling.”

Koleszar’s goal is to raise $250. To make a donation, go to his CCAP donor page.
