How do you raise $227,000 for "Youth for Christ" while riding a bike?
With a big event.
The amazing Mission in Motion cycling event happened last month. It took place in three locations in the Chicagoland area on three different days in May and, according to the event website, gave cyclists "the choice of 25, 40 or 62 mile (metric century) routes through scenic Illinois and Indiana countryside."
This time around, A Fence Above the Rest got involved. Besides becoming an event sponsor, we were able to help out financially by directly supporting local ministry sites where kids are being mentored on a personal level. We were thrilled to be part of the event and to work with these organizations.
But the best part?
Being part of an event that raised an astonishing $227,644.
See you at next year's event!
