She and 89 other college students, in an epic effort to raise awareness and money for Habitat for Humanity, will saddle up and spend this summer biking 4,000 miles across North America.
Every night, the riders will give presentations and answer questions in churches and community centers, trying to increase Habitat's visibility, stimulate the formation of new chapters, and encourage donations.
To make HBC 2006 a success, the riders need your help! Please take a moment to browse through a list of frequently asked questions and their answers, and check out some more information about the Bike Challenge.
If you like what you see, consider raising money and awareness by biking coast-to-coast for Habitat (applications posted soon), donating to the trip, or becoming a corporate sponsor.
Since each rider is required to raise $4,000 to go on the trip, if you decide to donate, please include my daughter's name, Deirdre Cerminaro, so that she may receive credit for your kind contribution.
Finally, the riders are specifically in need of a corporate donation of three digital projectors to use each evening to make their presentations. Please contact me if you or someone you know would be interested in donating them.
