Yesterday’s over my shoulder, and I can’t look back for too long.
There’s just too much to see waiting in front of me and I know that I just can’t go wrong.
Seems like I just sent you an update on the beginning of FLORIDA HOPE TOUR 2013. Suddenly it’s been more than two months, the warm Florida weather is a memory, and we’re on to another exciting project.
Before we leave Florida entirely behind, I encourage you to check out some of the stories on the RICH’S RIDE blog. We met some amaing people and had some wonderful adventures. I especially recommend Attack Of The Skunk-Ape!
It’s always sort of interesting to plan and prepare for months, tackle a big adventure, and then realize it’s over. But that’s how it works, and we have an amazing new opportunity in front of us.
U COUNT Front Range Tour 2013
On June 22, 2013, a team of about twenty cyclists will roll out of Fort Collins for U COUNT Front Range Tour 2013. We’ll ride through the scenic communities along the foothills of the Rocky Mountains from the Wyoming to New Mexico borders.
This ride is the latest project of RICH’S RIDE, and will raise funds and awareness for U COUNT Campaign. U COUNT increases awareness of the crime of global sex trafficking and to supports at-risk women and children and former victims of sex slavery by providing job sustainability and safe living and working environments.Shared Sacrifice: Having fun, making a difference
You can bring hope and freedom to victims of sexual exploitation by riding your bike through beautiful country with a team of great people.
How cool is that?
We’ll provide lots of opportunities to be involved in this fun project. Right now, we want you to consider joining the team as a cyclist.
You don’t need to be an experienced rider. Most folks can do this ride if they train. Following dreams isn’t about what’s easy—it’s about discovering what’s possible. This might be a chance to learn about your capabilities.
You don’t need a lot of money. Fundraising isn’t easy, but people are incredibly generous when you’re working to advance social justice through a cause like U COUNT. You can find supporters and sponsors if you’re creative and persistent. We’ll help.
Certainly this isn’t for everyone, but maybe it’s for you. Maybe God’s asking you to step out of your comfort zone and do something sacrificial.
