Peddle To Resettle!
27 dedicated riders came through our lunch station. There were a total of 52 participants in the activity part of the fundraiser. Most of them were cyclists, including at least 3 tandem bicyclists - who rode a shorter distance, so we didn't get to see them. And there were also 6 folks who took a September challenge and set personal goals. In addition to the 2 swimmers, 1 surfer and 1 hiker on our UCC team, there was a runner, and a skateboarder (a 14-year-old who clocked up 99 miles the first part of Sept, and did the final mile Saturday).
Our team raised $12,868 (over 100% of our goal), and we are still walking, paddling and riding the waves the month of September. We're all on track to meet our personal September challenge goals. Our team came in second in the fundraising.
Overall, World Relief raised $70,000. Just a few ways these funds make an immediate impact: they are able to purchase another moving and passenger van which is crucial to welcome and transport more families! Funds raised also help provide housing, job placement services, driving classes, English classes and more. In the month of August, World Relief welcomed 195 Afghans and anticipate 400 more coming in the next few months.
Thank you so much to all our participants and supporters. You have all made a difference!!!!
