Welcome to My 20th Year!

Lois Compton

This July I will partake in a week long, 500 mile adventure to support the mission of Anchor House and I am very excited to be doing it for my 20th year. Yes, that’s 20 years of riding at least 500 miles, factoring in a few extra over the years for getting lost. The route this year starts in Auburn, New York and heads southwest to Corning, NY, and into Pennsylvania before ending at Quakerbridge Mall. This event not only helps raise funds for Anchor House, but it will also raise awareness for the much needed shelter in Mercer County that provides food, emergency housing, clothing and most of all hope, for runaway and homeless teens.

Every year this event wouldn’t be possible without the ongoing, generous support of the donors. In the past, this event has raised over $500,000 and we are hoping to raise even more to continue to keep the doors of Anchor House open.

When I did my first ride in 1999, I never imagined that 20 years later I would still be on this wonderful journey. While the riding is exhilarating, what is even more uplifting is the feeling of doing something to help others in need. I’m so thankful for the great experiences and the many wonderful people that I have met over the years through this organization and truly believe that in helping others, it comes back to you tenfold.

Our mantra over the years while struggling to get up hills or complete an 85 mile day when its 90 degrees outside is “It’s For the Kids”. And it truly is for the kids of today who will become the adults of tomorrow. Please help to make a difference in someone’s life.

Thank you for your consideration in making a donation to help me reach my goal of $2,000.
