This year, the ride is virtual, but the need is just as real.
In fact, because of the year we're all having, the need is greater than ever.
You might have seen my fund raising efforts on behalf of the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts in the past. For every dolar we donate, they provide 3 meals to people living under food insecurity. As you can imagine, the need is greater now more than ever. As a personal challenge, during September, I will add all of the miles I ride on Zwift, a virtual cycling platform. And then, on Sunday September 26, I will go for the high mileage, riding until I can't anymore.
Hopefully you will join me in this effort, and make a donation by going to https://www.PledgeReg.com/3447/

Will Bike 4 Food
Will Bike 4 Food is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2020 and it is going VIRTUAL! This fun cycling event raises funds and awareness for The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Will Bike 4 Food invites cyclists of all ages and abilities to pedal towards a hunger-free future. This year you choose your ride. Ride up a mountain, on the trails, or your stationary bike at home.
100% of your donation goes to The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts to support their mission to feed our neighbors in need and lead the community to end hunger (unavoidable credit card fees notwithstanding). Every $1 = 4 meals!

Since 1982, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts has been feeding our neighbors in need and leading the community to end hunger. We distribute food to our member agencies in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties. These independent pantries, meal sites and shelters are on the front lines of emergency food assistance in our region, playing a crucial role helping individuals, families, seniors and children. Every $1 donated to The Food Bank can purchase 4 meals for a family who needs them most.
