This week something BIG is happening, and we thought it's about time to write about it. Recently we wrote about the Anchor House Ride For Runaways, and somehow something arguably more special is about to take place.
If you haven't head of Dream4TK yet, we'll start from the beginning. This is a group of students and alumni of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ who will be taking a bike ride from New Brunswick to Orlando Florida--1,500 miles--starting this Sunday, July 28th. They are taking on this monumental task to raise awareness and $1,000,000 for Embrace Kids Foundation.
Yes, seriously, 1 MILLION DOLLARS! That's alotta doh, as they say.
Embrace Kids Foundation helps children and families of children who have cancer and blood disorders. They help out with many of the non-medical needs of these families, from tutoring and support, to simply lifting the spirits of these families by organizing holiday celebrations and the like. This organization is based right out of New Brunswick, NJ where the 5 Dream riders will be leaving from. This video tells a lot about the foundation, ride and inspiration:
This goal of $1,000,000 and a 1,500 mile ride is something which Dream4TK hopes will bring in more than just money for these families, but awareness for the cause. They're trying to do something BIG in hopes to inspire others and these families to pursue their own dreams. It's about not giving up, pushing forward, and working to help others as well as yourself. Certainly, not something to be taken lightly.
The participants in this journey are friends of ours that we're honestly so proud of, and we hope you'll be inspired to take part as well.
On Sunday, before the ride sets off Dream4TK is having a launch party and bike tour in New Brunswick. The bike tour is going to be a 25 mile loop around Buccleuch Park, and the party will be going from 10 a.m to 1 p.m. You'll be able to enjoy food, music, and of course, almost too much fun, good vibes and inspiration as is possible.
We encourage you to head out to New Brunswick this Sunday to join in! We can all do a little bit to help out these riders and families in the pursuit of their goals.
All of the links and information for everything are already in the post, but just to make it super easy for you, here are the details!
