Inspired by my friends who created the “Tour de Revs” last year (see photo below), we’ve launched a 6 month project in the congregation I serve to raise money for ELCA World Hunger and to encourage fitness.
Nickel & Dime ’em to Life
It’s a simple project. Cyclists sign up and solicit pledges for each mile they ride between July 1 and December 31, 2010. All funds gathered go to support ELCA World Hunger. Donors may choose to support any individual cyclist or the entire group as a whole. A chart will hang in the church with each rider’s goal and each rider’s weekly mileage. This is designed for cyclists of all ages.
For my individual goal: 3000 miles. Those kind of miles might be a stretch, but that’s the target. That should put me over 5200 miles for 2010. I’ve never ridden over 700 miles in a year before.
