The fourth annual Tour D'Agape bike ride
is being organized for June 18th.
Tour D'Agape is a cycling event that raises funds for Agape in Action (AinA). This is an amazing opportunity for us to get involved, be active and really put our 'love into action' as we have been commanded (1 Jn 3:16-18).
Date: June 18th, 2011
Where: Cedarvale Park, Georgetown (corner of Main St. and Maple St)
The start times are as follows:
9:00 am - Veteran (100km)
11:00 am - Intermediate (50km)
1:00 pm - 'A nice roll' (25km)
1:30 pm - 'Kiddies Ride' (3km bike route = bike path)
This is a family friendly event! We have biking options to suit absolutely everyone's abilities! The park also offers lots of space, frisbee golf and a splash pad close by if kids what to cool down :)
In the past three years 24 riders have raised just over $14,000 and the money was put towards; hygiene kits, water development programs, and high school education. Our goal for 2011... $6,000+ for AinA! This money will go a long way to help a lot of people who really need it. This year the money will go towards the building of an Agape in Action High school in Kenya. Learn more about the High School project and why it's needed HERE.
