My beloved cycle team,
Thank you for taking the time to consider joining an incredible CYCLE event on Saturday, June 18, 2016 from 12:00-2:00 pm at the Mamaroneck Equinox. This is going to be an extremely emotional and powerful event. We advise you to arrive 15-30 minutes before the event begins so you can get ready to RIDE! The purpose of this ride is to support the young people BOTH here in America and in Africa. The monies raised from this event will go directly to the needs of our young people here and around the world.
Team, we live in a world of approximately seven billion people in which two billion live in poverty, countless millions live in a state of war, and everywhere human beings are struggling to find and keep meaningful purpose in their lives. And that’s where YOU matter! To share the power of love with everyone, everywhere!
C. S. Lewis said this:
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
I believe, deeply, that we ALWAYS have to dream big! If our dreams are only visions that we know 100% we can attain — than we have forgotten to invite God into the situation.
Over the past 4 years of our lives we have been on an incredible journey together as a cycling community. This event will truly honor the time and investment we have given to each other. Please, be apart of this event on June 18. My life is dedicated to serving the next generation. I’m inviting you to come along this journey with me. Please feel free to share with others if they would like to contribute to our cause.
Here are the logistics:
Lastly, I want to announce that this event will most likely be my last class in Mamaroneck. My life’s journey has taken me to Fairfield County, which I’m SO grateful for. My wife and I are beyond happy — we are ecstatic! As a result, we will truly be honoring our time together. Your presence and commitment to this ride means the world to me.
We are riding for the young people in our world — come out to this event and ride with me one last time!
