BENEFITING: PARTNERS IN MISSION - USA
EVENT DATE: Aug 05, 2017
A few years ago I got involved with PIM and the challenge to ride 50 miles from Illinois to Lake Geneva, WI. I never knew anyone that rode their bikes from the Chicago area to Wisconsin and thought it would be a great personal challenge as well as a wonderful fundraising opportunity. Partners in Mission identified a need to support education in Uganda and have worked to raise some serious funding to construct and improve a secondary school in Uganda. In 2015 75 riders and sponsors contributed $35,000 toward completion of phase one of the STEM Center for Kamwenge Secondary and Vocational School and last year with matching donations the contribution was appx. $80,000! This will be my third year riding and I have met many wonderful people on this ride. One of the greatest benefits to joining was that I made some new girlfriends that love to ride and train. The ride is both fun and challenging. After about mile 30.. you have to pedal pedal pedal, especially when it comes to the hills. Please consider donating to Bike to the Lake 2017 supporting Kamwenge Secondary & Vocational School . Thank you for your support!
