Welcome to my fundraising page for the 10th annual Will Bike 4 Food! This is a fun cyling event that helps feed our neighbors in need and end hunger in western Mass. by raising funds and awareness for The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Every $1 can provide 4 meals for a local family who needs them most. Contributions of any size to my efforts are appreciated. 100% of your donation will go to support The Food Bank's mission (unavoidable credit card fees notwithstanding). All donations are tax deductible. Thank you!
This is my fifth year participating in this worthwhile ride. In the past four years, with the help of so many of my generous friends, I have raised $9400 to support the mission of the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Although health issues will limit my ability to ride this year, I have set my goal at $2000 this year, which I feel is an achievable goal during this pandemic year, but I cannot do it without your help!
"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink...Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink...?...'Truly, I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me." Matthew 25:37-40 (NRSV)
Please be as generous as you feel blessed to be. With God's help, I can reach this lofty goal and help distribute over 8,000 meals to those who may not be able to obtain a nutritious meal.
Thank you and God bless all of you!
