Thank you for visiting my CER site! This is the 9th year in a row for my wife (Grace) and me. We are again blessed that God gave us the health to keep riding in 2023. CER has become family. Last year our lovely daughter Amy and oldest son, Donald and his wife Hannah volunteered to help during the ride. Donald kept me on track!
If you are active and want to get a wonderful feeling of serious accomplishment - come join us. If you are searching for purpose, you'll find it here. If you're searching for God, you'll find Him here.
From beginning to end, the CER staff, volunteers and kids feed, love and encourage us. There are no words to describe the feeling at the end. Please donate a lump sum or per mile pledge. You can't find a higher impact ministry. CER changes and saves lives. Thank you!
