I’m participating in the 25th Annual Habitat 500 Bike Ride this July to support Habitat for Humanity. This will be my 5th ride for this great cause. I’m asking you to support Habitat by making a donation. At our Itasca Habitat affiliate we just completed our 40th home. Along with riding, I've also served as a member of our Board of Directors, and currently serve as a family mentor. Two weeks ago, I did the home blessing for one of my mentor families...WOW.
My goal this year is $7500 total donations. This will include money pledged on this page, and monies received from my community and church family. As of March 7, we have $3950 raised! I will update this page as the funds come in, but we are off to a GREAT start.

We just passed $5000 in local donations. OH BABY! The Itasca affiliate has done a 4000 household color mailing, and we're hopeful that will bring in another $2000. In past years, my personal network has contributed $2500 - so things are looking pretty peachy. I'm currently riding 120 miles a week, and increasing my mileage by 10% a week.
