On Saturday, May 1st, hundreds will bike to help hundreds of millions. St. David’s Episcopal Church of Kinnelon will be hosting the third annual HUNGER CYCLE TOUR, the largest charity bike event in northern New Jersey. ALL profits go toward solving problems both near and far.
The event supports our Diocesan Millennium Development Goals mission as well as local needs. Specifically, profits will be donated as follows:
75% will go to the Episcopal Relief and Development fund to build and maintain clean water sources in Africa.
25% will go to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey to deal with our needy neighbors.
Last year riders from several local communities and ten churches of our Diocese joined the event. And, they were led by Bishop Beckwith, who swapped his miter for a helmet to ride that day. The Bishop rides again this year and you can join him!
The event consists of riders paying a fee to ride one of five routes (4- and 12- miles for the beginners and 25-, 40- and 62-miles for the serious cyclists. A giant post-ride BBQ with live music follows the ride and many other extras. Find all of the details and register thru our website, http://www.HungerCycleTour.com.
Remember the term 250 riders for 1 Billion people. 250 riders will be pedaling to support 1 Billion needy people. This event, which supports our Diocesan and National Church mission, allows each rider to lighten the burdens of four million individuals. Join us for a fun day and support your four million.
