Please sponsor me on the 40th Annual Ride for Runaways. This year’s ride begins Saturday, July 7th and ends Saturday, July 14th. The 2018 ride will start in Harrisonburg, Virginia, just to the west of Shenandoah National Park. The 500 mile route will begin by going northeast through the beautiful rolling hills and valleys of western Virginia with spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The next day we leave Winchester, VA and cross both the Potomac River and the Appalachian Trail before we reach Frederick, MD. We then ride north into Pennsylvania where we spend the next several days riding through the beautiful countryside’s and farmlands of Gettysburg, Lancaster and Lansdale. On Saturday we ride into New Jersey and back to Trenton. The trip ends with ceremonies at center court in the Quaker Bridge Mall (Trenton, New Jersey). Hope to see you all there!

For the past 40 years, Anchor House has provided comprehensive programming to assist in solving the problems of runaway and homeless youth and their families. Whenever possible, Anchor House helps families reunite and stay together. When they can't, Anchor House gets kids off the street, gives them shelter, and provides a place for them to live while they learn the skills they need to be independent. Anchor House serves youth between the ages of 12 to 21, and has served innumerable youth in its history. Programs at Anchor House include a walk-in shelter, a street outreach program, a crisis intervention program, a transitional living program, and a shelter for children ages 18 through 21.

The primary source of funding for Anchor House is the Annual Ride for Runaways. Each year in July, about 200 cyclists and 30 support crew members embark on a week long trek to raise money for the Anchor House programs.

All charitable donations will be acknowledged by the Anchor House via a letter stating the amount of your donation and their status as a non-profit charitable organization (for tax purposes).

Again, many thanks for your support from me and the kids of Anchor House!

Best Regards,

Mark Grasman
