Paul rode a one speed bike (which we still have) on this same trek in 1961 while I followed behind him in a van as he biked to Boy's Town in Omaha, Nebraska, all to raise awareness for this dream we shared of starting a youth home. For the two of us, it was the beginning of an adventure. Along the way, we made new friendships and partnerships that have spanned the life of this ministry.
After all these years and over 1,200 young men and their families, I have seen personally that a changed life is priceless. Take some time to meet the riders by visiting the Cycling Challenge website! Also, please pray for the safety of our young men, staff, and volunteers as they ride through Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska!
