BENEFITING: Peoria Area, Habitat for Humanity Greater
EVENT DATE: Aug 23, 2014
On August 23, I'm participating in an international cargo bike race in Copenhagen, Denmark. (That's a picture of me resting my tired rear end on my Bullitt cargo bike.) I'd love to use this opportunity to raise money for a cause that my mother, Carole Talcott, felt very close to - Habitat for Humanity of Greater Peoria Illinois. Please help me do so with your donations.
Mom, who passed away on March 1 of this year, was both a volunteer and a supporter of Habitat for Humanity. She worked at the Peoria chapter's "Re-Store," a place that collects and sells donated building goods and furnishings. My Dad worked there too; Mom arranged the furniture showroom in the front, and Dad worked in the back checking and rewiring lights and ceiling fans. Mom and Dad also regularly volunteered a local home building projects, and supported Habitat in many other ways. (Dad continues to volunteer at Habitat.) I'd be thrilled if I could raise $1000 for Habitat in her name!
