Bike for Compassion

In June of 2008 I will embark on a coast-to-coast (USA) bicycle ride to raise awareness and support for Kyamate CDC, a children's aid organization in Uganda partnered with Compassion International. The goal is to raise $30,000 by August of 2008 (the end of the bike ride) to build a community center for the 285 OVC (Orphans and Vulnerable Children). The center will also serve the secondary school, primary school and church in the community.

The bike route is yet undetermined but it will mostly follow the Transamerica Bicycle Trail. I have only begun to plan this trip but have already found a wealth of resources for it. I will be updating this blog as the trip approaches and as I travel along my route.

Tax-deductible donations can be made one of two ways. First, to donate by credit card, click the "Donate" icon in the upper right column. This is a PayPal donation and a secure site.

Second, mail a check. It's important that you write "Bike for Compassion" in the memo line of the check! A donation via check can be mailed to:

Purdue Christian Campus House
