Why do I go the extra mile with the AGONY Ride and CEM? I grew up poor and personally know people who hit rock bottom, used drugs, suicidal or abused, hung with the wrong people, got pregnant, was born into a tough situation, was in the wrong place at the wrong time, was dealt a bad hand in life. Life can be tough and even with love and support, sometimes youths just make bad choices that can also take them down the hard and rocky path. It would have been nice if CEM was around back then. CEM accepts youths on that tough, broken & lonely path, gives them strict rules, teaches about Christ and helps them figure out how to turn their lives around to become a productive and caring person in our community. The youths are empowered thru Christ. CEM accepts youths from all over and go beyond just helping thru the tough high school years by helping them along thru a career path or college. AGONY Ride is CEM's major source of funding. Let's show these youths that we care and give them reason to stick with the CEM program and work on their physical, mental, academic and spiritual well-being. Please sponsor these youths and my ride, either with a flat pledge or a pledge per mile. Thank you!
2019: My message that I wrote last year is still in my heart... I just want to add that CEM also has interns that work and live with the students. It's not an easy job and God definitely works on their lives also as they learn, grow and care for the students. As we ride, it's these students and interns that encourage and support us. While I ride and you sponsor, we prove to them that they are loved and their lives are worthwhile.
