Pedaling For America's Patriots
Pedaling for America's Patriots is a north to south cross-country bike ride in effort to raise money for Children of Fallen Patriots, a 4 star, 95% rated charity.
From Fallen Patriots:
"Our mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
We are dedicated to serving the families of servicemembers from all branches of the armed forces who have died as a result of combat casualties, military training accidents, service-related illnesses, suicide, as well as other duty-related deaths as ruled by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The vision of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is to ensure that every child of a fallen patriot receives all necessary college funding.
Research conducted by The Lucas Group on behalf of Children of Fallen Patriots found that nearly 20,000 dependents have been left behind by troops killed in the line of duty over the past 35 years. Many surviving families struggle to make ends meet with 63% of surviving spouses making less than $50,000 per year."
The one-man ride will begin in Chicago's Grant Park on September 17, will continue through St. Louis, and will end in New Orleans on October 17- weather permitting. The route will be just about 1000 miles. I encourage you to pledge an amount per mile to donate to Children of Fallen Patriots.
It is my hope to raise enough to make a significant impact on the cost of college tuition for one child.
100% of donations go straight to Children of Fallen Patriots. Any and all donations are welcome!
