This will be my 5th "Trek" and I'm very excited about the cause and our team. It is the 30th anniversary of the Trek. We will be riding 180 miles from the mountains of Bethel to the sea in Belfast. Last year, the Knights of Columbus team raised $9,800 for the American Lung Association's work to improve air quality and battle lung related illnesses. This year we have added more Knights to the team and are hopeful to increase our contributions to $20,000 for the ALA.
The Trek is a Father's Day weekend ride, giving it special meaning to many of us. I reach out to you and ask for your support. Please help me to reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible contribution in support of my participation and together WE can make a difference. Any donation you make will be much appreciated if you are inclined to contribute. The ride takes place June 13th thru June 15th and the American Lung Association is asking for donations to be turned in by May 20th if possible.
If you would prefer to contribute by mailing the American Lung Association a check, their address is listed below. Please remember to include my name in the memo line of your check so that your contribution will be credited to my ride. -Thank You!
