Summer is here. Classes are finished and the school is being packed up. Summer brings a whole lot of good things including gathering with friends and family, free time, beaches, cookouts, cottages, and mosquitoes (well most of those are good). Summer is also a great time to ride your bike. Last year we held our 1st Annual Challenged to Ride bike ride to support Building Illiana. We rode from the Trek store in Schererville to the Indiana Dunes. We invite you to join us once again for our 2nd Annual Challenged to Ride event on Saturday, August 25, at 9:00 am. You can choose to ride 10, 22, 33 or 66 miles. We are adding a SAG stop on the way home and improving the return transportation logistics. All riders will receive a performance T-shirt (if you register by August 1). You don’t need to be a professional rider to enjoy this day; we would love for people of all ages and skill levels to participate.

What are we riding for? All of the proceeds will go to the Building Illiana campaign. While we continue to be blessed by our generous donors, we still have additional needs including lights in the parking lot, Common Grounds coffee shop, some athletic equipment and storage structures. We are looking for business sponsors for the event as well as participants. Sponsorship information will be coming out soon.
