On April 14, approximately 30 cyclists lined up bright and early on a blustery Saturday morning in Midlothian, Texas to ride their chosen route of 10, 25 or 50 miles.
Lead by three PCHAS volunteers, the riders hit the road to raise money for kids in foster care.
Michelle Fisher, Kevin Cozine and Rick Presser organized the ride in partnership with Tarleton University-Midlothian. The three PCHAS volunteers have been cycling friends for years and wanted to use their hobby to bring awareness to and raise funds for a great cause.
“We wanted to use our talents in a way that benefits remarkable children who find themselves in tough circumstances,” said Presser.
Presser was inspired by his grandmother, who was orphaned and abandoned as a child, to find a way to help children in foster care. Last fall, he rode 1,000 miles across Texas in a similar fundraiser for PCHAS.
“I feel called to use the gifts God has given me,” he said.
The passion and dedication of these volunteers lead to the first annual Pedal for PCHAS event, which raised more than $1,300.
