Help Kids: Join Bike Across America This July

The Bike 4 Friendship Team, which raises funds and awareness for special needs children through an exciting bike tour across America, will pass through Denver on July 20th.

Last year, Team Friendship succeeded in raising awareness for acceptance of special needs individuals when they tackled the odds of a daunting journey and sent a clear message to spectators along the way, that external differences don’t render an individual less deserving of respect, compassion and friendship.

This year, Team Friendship is opening their arms to bike riders in Colorado who wish to join the team and participate in this exciting cross-country adventure.

The five-day bike ride will begin in Santa Fe, New Mexico on July 16, arriving in Lone Tree on Friday afternoon, July 20.

The 420-mile ride provides for some amazing scenic passes. The trip is kosher and includes accommodations and professional ride support along the way.

There is an $1,800 fundraising minimum goal to join the ride that will go to further Friendship Circle of Colorado activities.

“Bike for Friendship presents a fun way to raise awareness and funds for special needs individuals,” says Rabbi Benjy Brackman, who is helping coordinate the Colorado logistics and will also be joining the week long segment ride from Santa Fe to Denver.

For more information please call Benjy on 720-984-5805 or visit www.bike4friendship.com/Denver.
