Why I'm riding:

Last February, Lisa and I participated in an event that was truly transformational for us and our family. We participated in the 2018 Bikes Fight Poverty ride in support of 1Mission. This will be the 10th year (third for me) that 1Mission has sponsored this ride in support of raising funds to partner with families in Mexico to build safe homes. Funds raised from this event go directly to support new home construction with families in the Puerta Peñasco area. Each family that participates in this program works within their community to serve others in support of the overall mission of developing their community. Nearly 1.6 billion people around the world live in unsafe and inadequate housing. That’s 1 in 5 of us! People are living in houses made of cardboard and pallets, with dirt floors and tarps for the roof. This year we have again committed to helping continue to change that. We are asking you to help us change the world by donating to our 1MISSION Bikes Fight Poverty campaign. The ride is a two-day event covering 207 miles from downtown Phoenix to Puerta Peñasco, Mexico. Last year I was able to finish the 207 miles, but I could not have done it without the support of my family, my sponsors, and our group leaders, Lisa and Britni. Lisa and Lindsey provided SAG support for the event (ask them about their horse costume if you see them…), Trevor rode in the event (in the fast group!), and my grandkids, Lukas and Faith, provided moral and financial support (thanks Robert and Jen!). This year we will be adding our nephew Steven to the team. He is already training… In the end, however, this is about supporting 1Mission’s goal of developing communities that support poverty relief. Lisa and I would truly appreciate your support in this mission by supporting our ride with a donation to our campaign. Every little bit can make a huge difference.

Here's where your donation will go.

Right now, you're partnering with the Example Family Family.
