From June 4th through July 16th, I am participating in an endurance cycling event to support the mission of a local charity, Anchor House. Anchor House provides shelter, school and street outreach and transitional and supportive housing to youths, ages 12 to 21, in Mercer County and throughout NJ. It’s their mission to provide a safe haven where abused, homeless, runaway and at-risk youths and their families are empowered to succeed and thrive.

Since I was a teenager, I can remember the Anchor House Ride for Runaways ending at the Quakerbridge Mall in an emotional and joyous fanfare of riders and their families and friends celebrating the accomplishment of the ride and raising awareness about Anchor House. I have since come to know many of the seasoned riders who have participated in the ride for decades and the unbelievable dedication and courage that it takes to complete the “Classic” ride of 500 miles over 7 days. More importantly I have come to know how this annual ride supports such a valued community charity and the importance of the fundraising that allows Anchor House to aide and support so many youths and families providing hope and safety where there had been none.

Although I am not participating in the Classic ride from Charlottesville, VA to Trenton, NJ, I will be participating in the Flex ride of 500 miles over the next 6 weeks. And although it may not be as grueling as the one week ride, it will still be a challenge for me, one I gladly take on to help raise money and awareness for this organization. I hope you will consider supporting me in this effort by making a tax-deductible donation towards my goal of $750 so that Anchor House can continue their mission to help children, teens, young adults and families in need.

Thank you in advance for your support. I appreciate your generosity—every little bit makes a difference!
