I've teamed up with Rebels for a Cause and the Moveable Feast in an effort to help those in the Maryland area who are in need. I met up with Rebels with a Cause through an open-invitation bike ride down to Annapolis, MD and back in 2017. It was a tough ride, but it was worth all the sweat and sore legs. Ever since that ride, I've had a kinship with the team and their message.
They are the most thoughtful and caring bunch of riders I've ever had the opportunity to ride with, and they support the Moveable Feast right here in Maryland. They've combined their enjoyment of riding, with a great cause, called Ride for the Feast.
As a returning rider in 2020, my goal is to get the message out there for those who may have heard about the Moveable Feast, but aren't sure how to volunteer or donate and those who just want to go out and ride while raising money for a good cause! Any skill level is welcome, and I'm more than happy to to talk more about what it is we do.
Ride for the Feast
Ride for the Feast is a 2-day, 140-mile Maryland bike ride from Ocean City to Baltimore City, May 2-3, 2020.
The 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. Our services are provided in Baltimore City, the 5 surrounding counties and on the Eastern Shore, all at no cost to our clients. in 2018, Moveable Feast delivered 743,940 life-saving meals to 6,060 Marylanders.
This ride is also symbolic - the fundraising minimum of $1,500 equals the food costs to feed one client for a year. 140 miles represents the furthest distance Moveable Feast travels to deliver to a client.
With your help, we are working to deliver 1 million meals in a single year – each one made and delivered with love. 100% of your donation goes directly back into the services provided to our clients. Your support will aid thousands of our neighbors here in Maryland.
“Moveable Feast has been the best thing that has happened to me. These wonderful people fulfill a service that has literally changed my life!!! Thank you!” - John, a Moveable Feast client.
