Nickel & Dime ’em to Life

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.

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.
