Join American Bike Challenge and Help Food For The Poor

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Sept. 18, 2015) – Are you looking for a creative and fun way to make a positive difference this fall? Take the American Bike Challenge! Food For The Poor is one of 10 charities chosen as a recipient of this inaugural fitness and fundraising challenge.

The American Bike Challenge, a nationwide cycling event, is bringing together cyclists from across the country to support 10 partner charities. The challenge will begin on Sept. 21 and last through Oct. 5.  

The event is being hosted on the fitRaise platform. Individuals and groups interested in taking part in the event can visit www.FoodForThePoor.org/bikechallenge to be directed to the registration site. Once there, click on the yellow tab to sign up.

After you've joined, create your donation page and share it with friends, family, and co-workers to collect pledges for each mile that you ride during the event. Track your miles with the free fitRaise app, MapMyRide, or FitBit.

Money raised in the challenge and donated to Food For The Poor will go directly toward easing the hunger pains of poor children and their families in the Caribbean and Latin America.

“It doesn’t take much to feed a starving child. The average cost of a night’s dinner for two will allow us to feed a hungry child for an entire year,” said Angel Aloma, Executive Director of Food For The Poor. “This organization is honored to be a recipient of the American Bike Challenge. Any donation given to Food For The Poor that will allow us to help those in need is a welcomed blessing, and we’re truly thankful.”

Food For The Poor, named by The Chronicle of Philanthropy as the largest international relief and development organization in the nation, does much more than feed millions of the hungry poor in 17 countries of the Caribbean and Latin America. This interdenominational Christian ministry provides emergency relief assistance, clean water, medicines, educational materials, homes, support for orphans and the aged, skills training and micro-enterprise development assistance, with more than 95 percent of all donations going directly to programs that help the poor.
