Welcome to My Personal Page
Living the lifestyle we do in Southern Florida, it is unreal to read the statistics listed here under. As American Citizen since 2016, I am more than ever convinced that no child should experience hunger, not anywhere, not in America, and certainly not among the prosperity of much of Florida.
Therefore I decided to participate for a 3rd year to the Pan Florida Challenge for Hungry Kids. On March 10-11, some 100 of us will ride our Bicycles across Florida, 200 miles in 2 days.
Thanks to the generosity of many of my friends I have increased my goal to raise over $5000 … $25 per mile. I am happy to report that we are well on our way and I am very well prepared for the challenge with over 10000 miles in the last 14 months and riding my bike 167 miles this Saturday February 24th for my 67th birthday! I will not disapoint your cheering and encouragements. During the celebration with cycling friends this Sunday Feb. 25th we rose $1220 for the PFC.
Each $25 ...( each mile on the bike ! ) will stave off a child hunger for an entire month. $250 can feed a child for an entire school year. Whatever you can give will help!
Thanks to all of you who have already supported the PFC for Hungry kids in 2016-17, contributing to over 3 millions meals and all of you who will join contributing to this 2018 challenge.
Here a few facts you can also read on the PFC website:
• One in four Florida children (25 percent) are food-challenged - so hungry they often can’t sleep or study or do anything but worry about when they’ll eat again.
• Kids suffering from poor nutrition miss more school, suffer developmental setbacks, experience social, emotional and behavioral challenges – all because they are hungry
• In just three years, Pan-Florida Challenge has provided over 3 million meals to hungry children. With your support, 2,500+ children will receive PFC Power PacksRide for a weekend. Feed children for a year.
