Being sponsored to ride your bike

There are millions of causes to give to here in the USA. And people have a lot of charities to pick from.

That is one of the greatest things about the United States of America. People love to give to something that is worthy and a good cause.

The Bike + Farm = Food fund raiser has obiviously been deemed a worthy and good cause based on the response from people who are sponsoring Thomas and I to ride our mountain bikes in this weekends Whiskey Off Road Mountain Bike Endurance Race.

I think for me one of the most exciting things about this event besides riding with 700  other mountain bikers as well as  the challenge, is something that happened to me this past Sunday.

A young man by the name of Anden came up to me and said he wanted to sponsor me a $1.00 per mile . I was stunned  but was quick to take  him up on it.

With this young mans backing, I will certainly have more motivation to keep peddling and keep climbing the entire 50 miles.

Here are a couple of pictures of one of my favorite supporters.

Thank you Mr. Anden Scheffert for the amazing donation to help us with Church Farm this weekend. Because of you, the Church Farm gets a pump for the well.

My theme for the Whiskey this weekend is the following scripture.

“The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
       and will strengthen your frame.” Isaiah 58:11
