THE STORY:

We are biking to support our favorite local Christian ministry.

This is ultimately a fundraiser for Doing Good . Funds will be used to support the development of Youth, College and Professionals mentoring throughout the Bay Area through the specialized ministries of the Bay Area Christian Church (www.bacc.cc), which have had profound impact on young people in the greater Bay Area community. Over 500 teens and middle school children are mentored by over 150 volunteer workers currently involved in the youth program. Mentorship provides character education and training rarely addressed in typical schools and youth athletic programs. 

Youth & College students also learn the value of mentoring and serving others, such as special-needs children through programs such as SF E-Hoops (www.facebook.com/eHoopsSF), E-Soccer (http://e-soccer.org/) and E-Karate (http://karate.e-sports.org/). The inclusive environment (special needs kids involved with and participating right alongside typical kids, mentors and coaches) teaches and trains special qualities of heart and character, such as empathy, compassion, leadership and selfless service, just to name a few. 

Peer groups and family involvement are other big parts of the youth program that contribute to its effectiveness. In addition, the overall mentoring experience for the youth provides a special flavor of community involvement that will prepare them for leadership roles in high school, college and on into their professional lives.

100% of funds donated are considered tax deductible.
