I am riding, because riding my bike has changed my life!
I ride because it gives me time to reflect upon the gifts that have been provided to me. Many of you may have had the privilege of knowing Becky and Harry V, some of you know them through the stories iI share. They are Northern Light that my moral compass is set to. Mom and Dad gave LOVE unconditionally!
I'm riding to raise money for a forgotten people in Kenya, Africa, The Pokot Tribe. These people have no access to the basic need of clean water. Over 750 million people in the world lack access to clean water…750 million! That is almost two and a half times the United States population. There is something we can do. I can ride my bike and YOU can help me. Please consider supporting me on this path.
I have seen the efforts of Hope Water Project and heard the stories from the people who have been there. When a community gains access to clean water:
• Infant mortality rates drop by half!
• Children can attend school instead of gathering water
• Women can care for their families instead of walking to the well Crops and livestock thrive.
Your donation does make a difference. It will impact lives in Africa and encourage me to keep going on this mission. Over the past years 100 wells have been installed. the wells provide stability where villages have grown, lives have been saved and communities have been formed and thousands of people have heard the Gospel for the first time. This is just a small impact clean water has.
I am also riding with Hope Water Project to give back to them! My teammates on Hope Water Project have pushed me to be a better person and pushed me past my notion of what I can or cannot do! I am healthier and in better shape (you may doubt that looking at me) then before. Im riding to work, encourage and with HIS grace help keep the team safe! Please consider supporting me in this effort.
