Riding for the Kids!

Sherry Schweighardt

Hi, Everyone!

Once again, I’m training for the 7-day, 500-mile Anchor House Ride for Runaways.

The problem is right here, among us--kids living with the insecurities of abuse, neglect, poverty, and turmoil impacting them so deeply that fleeing home feels safer than staying. But together, we can help.

Anchor House provides a safe harbor for children ages 6-21 who are forgotten, who fall through the cracks of “the system,” and who have few resources otherwise. A small, but dedicated staff and many volunteers at “The House” do so much with so little to help homeless, runaway, abused, and at-risk children, along with youth who are aging out of traditional support systems. Anchor House warmly receives those who come to the door—but also proactively works with schools and scours the streets of Trenton to identify those who may need help but don’t know where to find it. The kids receive shelter, guidance—and much love—to transition into a secure and productive future.

Most of you know that I have spent my life working on behalf of kids, including those benefiting from Anchor House. I will ride again to raise funds so the work can continue. I invite you to join me by donating; even a few dollars with make a difference.

For the kids.

Thank you, and take care,
Sherry

P.S. I continue to ride in memory of my nephew, Chad Breitz, who will always ride his “invisible bike” next to mine.
