PRLog - Sep. 14, 2012 - SEATTLE -- Recently The International Christian Cycling Club Seattle Spoke (IC3NW) began collecting new & gently used (clean w/ no holes) socks at various locations around the Seattle area, collection will continue until October 19th. Those socks will be donated to the Seattle Union Gospel Mission where they will be distributed to the needy throughout the greater Seattle area this fall and winter. The Seattle UGM gives away over 35,000 socks per year and IC3 wants to help contribute to that in their own unique way.

The “Ride Your Socks Off” event will be on Saturday, October 20th 2012. After the club collection efforts, club members, and any willing volunteers, will meet at Eastside Foursquare Church in Bothell WA. These cyclists will then take the donated socks, via pedal power, 20 miles (each way) to the Seattle UGM Men’s Shelter in downtown Seattle. At this time the club will also be presenting the UGM with a donation check for the amount of money raised during the 2012 cycling season through sponsorships and sales of team items.

Your support, in the form of sock donations or ride participation is greatly appreciated. All are welcome to join on the ride on October 20th. The club asks that if you join, simply bring your bike, a helmet, some socks to donate, and a willingness to participate in the cause of reaching out to the less fortunate in the Seattle area.
