Tell your story about giving and inspire others to live generously.
I Like biking.

I went with 4 of my friends from Seattle, WA to New York City on a bicycle to raise money for a need based scholarship

We are a group of college students that rode on our bicycles for nearly 3 months to get from the Pacific to the Atlantic. We did this trip in hopes of being able to tell stories of strangers and their incredible generosity as well as paying it forward by starting an endowment at our school, Grove City College in Western PA. After 77 days, May 26th to August 10th, we made if from one coast to the other. During the summer of 2012, 75 out of the 77 days spent on the road, someone opened their home to us. They fed us, kept us cool, and gave us comfortable beds. Most of these generous people were strangers to us, but heard our story and were touched by our mission. Now, not even a year since we started, we have raised over $53,000 for a need based, diversity endowment for our college. This endowment is rejuvenating so all the money given will be invested and given as a new gift each year. Our first recipient of the Team GCC Bike Team scholarship will be this spring.
