I’ve always had a century ride on my bucket list. I knew I’d do one in 2017 but I never thought that I could do something more significant than just ride my bike for 100 miles. I’m excited to do not only 100 miles in one day but 250 miles over 3 days (50m, 100 m, 100 m) for 3 reasons (1) To raise awareness and money for Hope For Freedom whose mission is Gathering.Equipping.Mobilizing to end modern day slavery (www.goChristFellowship.com/serve/hope-for-freedom), (2) To visit St. Augustine which represents a significant part of my family’s history because I have great-grandparents and other relatives that were slaves. St. Augustine is not only the oldest city in the U.S. but most notable is that it was the hub of the slave trade. (3) Commemorate a milestone birthday by doing something for others (raise awareness of slavery – historical and modern-day) which requires a significant commitment to training and requires that I push my body to do something I’ve never done before.
Thank you so much for your contributions so that I can reach my goal and contribute to rescuing victims!
