Tests of endurance. This will certainly be one. I'm going to ride my bike on the White Pine Trail from its origin in Cadillac, MI , to its end in Grand Rapids, MI. Total miles on the bike in one day: 100.
I'm looking forward to challenging myself for a day to do something big. It's a bonus that I get to do it for a great cause! Eagle Village is a residential facility for at-risk youth. These kids have gotten in trouble with the court system, been abused, and/or been neglected. Some of these kids have biological families in their lives, some of them don't. This organization exists to offer them hope and healing, giving them the tools they need to be successful members of their family and their community.

Giving kids tons of creative and exciting people to model after and tools to use when they strike out on their own are what Eagle Village is all about. This time it happens to be a wild and crazy group of extreme stunt riders with a personal message about faith, life and finding your passion.
From Zero Gravity, "The question of “who are we?” is an amazing story of God connecting a small group of motivated believers through their common interests in extreme sports of various types, positive high energy music, unique videography, and a desire to impact this generation and future generations for Christ. We believe that God has blessed us with gifts, talents, and passions that must not only be used for entertainment or enjoyment, but also be used to bridge the gap between our current culture and true faith."
Their messages of encouragement teamed with their high energy extreme sports demonstrations are sure to be inspirational and exciting for all youth who attend.
Your donation will help bring this amazing group to the youth at Eagle Village and the young people from area churches for an afternoon of thrills experienced and truths heard.
