Hard to believe that only a few months ago, we were just starting to navigate the challenges of COVID-19. At that time, we planned to hold the 2020 Outreach for Hope Family Bike Ride on September 12 as planned.
Today, we better understand how the virus spreads, and those who are most at risk. Out of respect for the safety of our valued participants, we have decided to cancel the in-person portion of the event.
We are proud to announce that our Outreach for Hope 2020 Ride/Run/Walk is going virtual!
What does that mean, exactly? We are inviting bikers, runners and walkers to remotely participate in 25 fitness and fundraising challenges in honor of Outreach for Hope’s 25th anniversary. You decide the time and place of each activity, as long as it’s between now and September 30th.
Once you’ve registered online, we’ll mail your t-shirt(s). We’ve also created a blog with helpful resources, and a Facebook Group for participants to share their progress and photos– so that even though we’re physically distanced, we’re still connected as a community.
But some things haven’t changed. We’re still providing individuals, families, and congregations with opportunities to build community; to learn about the ministries your gifts will help support; and to work together to raise life-giving funds for those in need. With your help, we want to register a minimum of 625 participants, log 25,000 miles, and raise $150,000! Your financial support is more important than ever before in our 25 year history.
