For those who have lost hope, I ride. For those who are missing a loved one, I ride. For those who believe they have no one around that would care for them, I ride. For those who have done things they believe could never be forgiven, I ride. As I have experienced my little brother fall into the consuming nature of drugs, I have seen first-hand just how someone can be broken down to the very foundation of their souls. I have experienced through my brother his renewal through Jesus Christ. As Jesus Christ would serve the poor, the needy, the hopeless, and the forgotten, so did the group of strangers that poured into my brother. As I had even lost hope at the time, it was these strangers, who loved like Jesus, who showed me just how much the Love of God can change someone. Now I have my brother back and he's coming home to the kingdom. I couldn't be more thankful and have nothing else to give but a Hallelujah. But God didn't stop there, he gave me a heart to share this with others and to share the burdens of someone else's brother/sister/family member in need. So for you brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers who dearly love and miss your family member, I encourage you keep praying and to never give up, because our God can work miracles in anyone.

I rode in this event last year, and it was the most amazing thing that I have participated in outside of my marriage. The kingdom of heaven was present and you could see the love of Christ shine bright into each and everyone. If you really want to make an impact in someone's life, this organization is changing the lives of our struggling youth. As I want to show this to these people through this ride, and what I can give financially, if you can commit to sponsoring me, I would ride my heart out for these individuals. You can choose to support per mile or just a lump sum. For reference, I rode 175 miles last year and believe it's very possible for me to reach 225-250 miles. Last year, I didn't have many people donating per mile, so if you'd like to see how far I can ride, I'd recommend $.25/mile and set a maximum amount you're willing to donate (.25 x 225 = $56.25.) Any amount helps, $5, $2, whatever you can spare. All I ask is that you give with a heart of joy, knowing that the money you donated is going towards the kingdom. THANK YOU in advance.
