Support the Oct. 4th Pedal Project

09/17/2014

 

 

The Murphy-Harpst Auxiliary is excited to announce that the 6th Annual Pedal Project Campus Bike-a-thon will be held at Murphy-Harpst on Saturday, October 4th at 10:00 a.m.!   This fundraising event gives the children in residence an opportunity to participate in a fun and healthy activity they enjoy – bike riding or power walking with friends.  Each “Mile of Hope” completed builds confidence as the children set goals and persevere to achieve those goals, earning donations as they go.

Inspired by this annual effort of the MHCC children, we are thrilled to report that the surrounding community has joined the children in their endeavor to raise funds via bike-riding!  The 1st Annual Cycle Therapy “Miles of Hope” ride was held on the Silver Comet Trail in May.  Just over 1,600 “Miles of Hope” were completed and $2,500 was raised for the therapeutic services needed at MHCC.  As others hear about the efforts of the children, we hope they will be inspired to hold similar “Miles of Hope” walking, running, or bicycling events in their churches and communities!

You can help support the children on campus in their efforts through your prayers, by attending the event, and/or by sponsoring a rider through a monetary donation.  Your tax-deductible donation can be made via a check to the Murphy-Harpst Auxiliary, designated for the Pedal Project Bike-a-thon, or through the MHCC donation link: http://weblink.donorperfect.com/pedalproject.  The Auxiliary will cover all expenses so 100% of the donations made toward the campus bike-a-thon will directly benefit the children at Murphy-Harpst. 

We hope to see you on October 4th, but please remember that if you can’t be there, your support through prayer and sponsorships will mean so much to the children of MHCC!  If you are able to visit the MHCC campus in Cedartown and cheer on the children, bike decorating will begin at 10:00 a.m. and the ride will take place from 10:30-11:30 a.m.  Please consult the MHCC website at murphyharpst.org for information and directions or call Mary Margaret at (706)346-6419.  Thank you for considering how you might participate in the Pedal Project Bike-a-thon and for sharing this opportunity with your friends and family.
