2011 Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure
Congratulations to our FCBA team
on another great Adventure!
Fourth annual ride a huge success!
This summer, volunteers from far and wide rode their bicycles from Seattle to Washington, D.C., to help families break the cycle of poverty, supporting The Fuller Center for Housing’s mission of helping families achieve safe, healthy, energy efficient and affordable homes. Some tallied hundreds of miles on one of our nine segments, some thousands of miles as they went the whole way, and still others just a few miles in their own communities as virtual riders; all have contributed to making the world a better place.
In this question-and-answer session, Bicycle Adventure coordinator Allen Slabaugh dicusses the triumphs and travails of the 2011 Adventure and why people are so passionately invovled. He also looks ahead to the 2012 Adventure, which will be the fifth and will feature a twist with one ride down the East Coast and one down the West Coast.
Not that biking 75 miles per day isn’t enough, but for these adventurous volunteers it’s simply not enough. They visit with church folks. They speak to media. They present to civic clubs. They shamelessly ask for donations. And everyone’s favorite: they stop to build or renovate houses for and with some outstanding Fuller Center partner families.
The ride is not a race, it is an invitation — an invitation for every church, business, and individual to get themselves in motion to follow Christ’s call to love and serve our neighbor, most especially "the least of these." So come volunteer with us at the 2011 Millard Fuller Legacy Build. Travel and build with us around the world. Donate toward our $500,000 goal. Ask your church to partner with us. Bring the Fuller Center to your area.
