THE STORY:

In September of 2013, I will be taking a bike ride to help victims of human trafficking.

Only this is no ordinary bike ride...I'll be riding across, up, and down the United States, from one end to the other...a total of 5,000 miles!

And the bike I will be riding is not an ordinary bike: It is made of BAMBOO, hand-crafted in Porto Alegre, Brazil!

I will be donating all funds raised to Bombay Teen Challenge, who fights to end human trafficking and help those victimized by it. PLEASE JOIN ME IN THIS FIGHT, and join me on my ride by donating to this cause!

I have personally been to Mumbai India, and visited Bombay Teen Challenge, their Ashagram Facility, children's shelter, and medical clinics in the Red Light District. I have spent time with the founder of BTC, and listened to women share their stories of slavery, abuse, and ultimately freedom. I can tell you firsthand what an amazing organization this is, and how they are making  very real, and very deep and lasting impact on lives in the heart of Mumbai. What I can't tell you is the number of times I literally wept as I heard and saw what is going on there...too many to count. 

Please help me raise $20,000 to assist them in building a brand new, much needed educational facility. The key to many of these women and children is education...any amount would be greatly appreciated!

(*Note: I have worked over 70 hours a week for the last year to afford the cost of this ride, and to ensure that every penny donated goes to the cause I am riding for. Please donate, and help me reach my goal of $20,000!)
