Set for ‘Bike to Build’ Ride to Benefit Habitat for Humanity of Broward
FORT LAUDERDALE (February 5, 2016) – First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale will be staging its fourth annual “Bike to Build” bike ride to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Broward on Saturday, February 13.
Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. at the church (401 SE 15th Avenue) with the ride beginning at 8 a.m. Brunch will be served following the 25-mile ride.
The cost is $35 per person and each rider is asked to raise a minimum of $100, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Habitat Broward construction projects.
“We’re looking forward to once again partnering with First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale for this exciting event,” said Perry Ecton, Habitat for Humanity of Broward’s Executive Director. “There’s always a hearty group of bike riders who come out to support this great cause. We want to emphasize that the event is designed for riders of all experience and skill levels.”
Forty riders participated last year and the hope is for an even greater number of entrants this year.
“Members of First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale were founding members of Habitat for Humanity of Broward back in 1983, so we have a long and productive relationship with Habitat since its inception in Broward County,” said Kathy Craven, a member of First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale as well as a Habitat Broward Board member. “After Hurricane Andrew dislocated thousands of people in 1992, we made a pledge to build 20 homes in 10 years with Habitat. We have built 19 and our hope is, through the ‘Bike to Build’ event, to get back on track with our 20th home and to build one each year thereafter.
“Habitat for Humanity is an integral part of our Mission commitment at First Presbyterian and, in fact, it is the mission that really transformed us into a church where mission is at the forefront of loving and serving our community here in Broward County. We also volunteer on a monthly basis building Habitat homes and we support other aspects of Habitat with space for meetings and sponsoring an annual ‘Picnic in the Park’ for the college students who volunteer during the Collegiate Challenge program each spring.”
