OK, Bike for Burundi is ready for take-off!
Imagine doing 30 marathons in 34 days, through snowy icy mountains, deserts, plains and cities. That gives you some idea of what cycling 3,152miles at over 100miles/day looks like, as I (with three others) prepare for the epic challenge of riding from West to East coast of the USA. It will be a killer, and we’re doing it to raise money for the poorest of the poor, to empower the Batwa (pygmees) and orphans we work with in Burundi, and to generally press forward with our work to see the transformation of the nation.
So far, before today’s formal launch, we have already raised about $160,000. Our target is $500,000.
PLEASE dig deep and put a dent in that number. We are being privileged to change thousands of lives, and I’d love you to be a part of it. Think of the abandoned kids now in our care who will be the next generation’s leaders. Or the pygmees whose life expectancy was 27-years-old but who now have access to clean water and are being educated at the school we built for them, and now following Jesus because of all the very tangible love they have been shown in His name. The story’s a beautiful one, and there’s so much more to do!
