This cross-country bike trip with The Dream Project is a giant leap out of my comfort zone, but it’s absolutely worth it. My teammates and I have each committed to raising thousands of dollars in support of Elijah’s Promise, a local soup kitchen that provides healthy meals and community outreach to a great many New Brunswick citizens. They provide job training, a community garden, long-term outreach for the homeless, and low-cost nutrition education for children and adults, and nearly $40,0000 will help them do a lot of good. For each of us, it’ll be $3,500 dollars raised, and 3,500 miles biked. Daunting numbers to be sure, but not impossible.
