In 1961, Paul Anderson climbed on a bike and rode to Boy’s Town in Omaha, Nebraska from Vidalia, Georgia. During this ride, Paul and Glenda began spreading the word about “why” they saw the need to help transform the lives of troubled young men. On this ride Truett Cathy, owner and founder of Chick-fil-A, met Paul and Glenda and became our very first contributor!
For 15 years, we have been commemorating Paul’s original ride by selecting several young men to go on a challenging summer bike ride. This year, we have challenged all of our current young men to take part in this event. Each young man will be paired up with one of his PAYH brothers, and they will participate in a “relay” of sorts, taking turns to cover up to 80 miles per day in order to complete the journey. We also intend to increase our focus on education and recreation.
Our prayer is that this will be a transformative experience for each young man. A changed life has the potential to impact countless others, and the differences we see in our young men are truly life changing. By planting God’s Word in their hearts, we seek to introduce them to Jesus Christ, who can transform their lives for eternity.
By partnering with the Paul Anderson Bike Ride, you can help us reach our goal of $160,000. By joining in this effort, you can provide hope to those who need it.
