Bike, Hike and Trike Fundraiser| Joel Martin

$1,310 of $1,000 raised

I'll be riding my banana seat bike around Hamilton in order to raise support for the children and neighbours of Home Of Grace Care Centre in Kenya.  They provide essential care for children who have experienced abuse and neglect or whose caregivers are unable to provide for them.  Because the staff are wonderful and see needs in the community for other children as well, they have facilitated a feeding program over the past few years to help even more!

Please join us to raise funds to support Home of Grace and its neighbours.

This year our focus is on:

Lunch feeding program – A nourishing hot lunch for school children living in poverty. For many, this is their only meal of the day. Full tummies mean better grades.

Sanitary kits for girls – Girls will receive a kit with pads, fresh underwear and soap. This will allow them to attend school uninterrupted.

Education scholarships – Money to help cover school fees for promising students in the community, where finances are an obstacle to getting an education.

I will be riding 20km on my old school banana seat bicycle!  It was given to Mr. Garry Andres for Christmas many years ago and he sold it to me when I was a teenager for $25.  I had New Hope Bikes clean it up and replace a few parts.  Now, I'll cruise around and hope to have you help power me along with your financial support.  I may even stop by your home for a photo!
