The Cause:

This year’s race marks the 10th anniversary of the Ride the River bicycle and 5k fundraising event for student ministries at Our Father Lutheran Church. As we celebrate the momentous 10-year anniversary of Run/Walk/Ride the River, our goal is to exceed last year’s total donations of $25,000.

This year, we look forward to sending over 50 students and adults to do mission work across the globe with various charities. Included are the following: a grass-roots after-school childcare ministry and adjoining food bank in Denver entitled Crossroads of the Rockies, an orphanage in southern India and a building repair mission trip to a poor rural area of West Virginia devastated by unemployment in recent years. In addition, God’s financial grace continues to equip our kids with generous hearts. An approximate $5000 of our net fundraising income will be donated to four charities of their choosing.
