2019 will be my 7th year riding my bicycle in the Ride For the Feast event. The official ride covers 140 miles from Ocean City, MD to Baltimore, MD.
This year I will be riding with Team Atomic, May 9 through 12, 2019. On Thursday May 9th, I am riding with a small group of hearty riders to the START of the ride, which adds an additional 100 miles to the Ocean City from Baltimore. Why? Because we can!
The Ride For the Feast event raises money for Moveable Feast, the only Maryland nonprofit that delivers healthy meals to people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. They don't ride with us; mostly they are too ill to ride so we ride in their honor.
As a rider, I've agreed to raise a minimum of $1,500 to support Moveable Feast's efforts. In reaching my goal, Moveable Feast will be able to feed one of their clients for an entire year. That's why your support is so crucial!
I hope you'll consider making a gift of $25 or more. $100 can feed 3 people with cancer for a week. Unlike many charities, Moveable Feast promises 100% of the proceeds raised through this event will go directly back into providing these much needed services to their clients. What a huge difference a small amount can make.
These services are provided in Baltimore City, the 5 surrounding counties and on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, all at no cost to the clients. The fundraising minimum of $1,500 equals the amount it costs to feed one client for a year. 140 miles represents the furthest distance Moveable Feast travels to deliver to a client.
To donate, please follow the links on this page to contribute. Any dollar amount will aid in my goal of raising $1500 and every dollar goes toward feeding and supporting Moveable Feast's clients.
Thank you in advance for your generosity. You are truly making a difference with your donation.
With much gratitude,
P.S. The photo is from a trip with my sister and niece to Iceland last June. It was wet and cold, and it kind of reminded me of the starts of many spring training rides and the actual Ride for the Feast events!
