EVENT: 120 for Orphans Bike Ride
EVENT DATE: Oct 20, 2011
HOURS PLEDGED: 48
Here's the deal. I found out about this great charity and how they help starving kids in Guatemala. To raise awareness I am riding 120 miles over two days around lake Okeechobee. Every single penny goes to feeding the kids and the orphanage. You can learn more about it at iorphan.cc
My goal is to raise $10 per mile of the ride.
We hope to fund two projects with the money. The orphanage we support in Dufailly, Haiti is in desperate need of a well. The children do not have access to clean water and a well is a matter of life or death for them. In addition, we hope to fund the installation of security bars on group homes at Casa Shalom Orphanage in San Lucas, Guatemala. They also need bunk beds as theirs are falling apart. Hopefully the budget will be sufficient enough to boost their food allotment for next month – the kids aren't eating a well-balanced diet right now.
