6-Day Bike Rally
PLEASE SPONSOR
Gary van der Meer
Amount Raised
$7,537.00
Fundraising Goal $7,500.00

My Message

I'm doing it again! My bike is out on the road to train for the Friends For Life Bike Rally.

The required minimum fundraising to participate is $2500. I'm so happy and grateful to all of you for helping me to loop the finish line twice, and now I'm well on my way to a third time for a total of $7500.

Why do more than is required? Because the cause matters. The money funds services for people with HIV/AIDS. A career person with a health plan can cover everything. But what about poor people who always fall through the cracks in our safety net. Education, food bank, counseling, and support groups - all in a community that respects everyone's dignity. 

Last year, the bike rally raised $1million. As of today, it's at $750,000. We're not done, so let's keep going. Thank you for all your wonderful support. All donations over $20 will receive a charitable tax receipt.
