What difference does one week make?
Two pictures, taken at the same spot while on a training ride, one week apart. The snow is finally gone! Halleluiah! One week does make a difference.
What difference will 8½ weeks, 60 days, make this summer? Many lives will be saved and hopefully 60,000 lives transformed in rural Africa as we raise money for 60 wells.
This ride across Canada creates moments of feeling overwhelmed! First the thought of 60 days of riding, then the distance of almost 8000 km. On top of that is our goal of raising funds for 60 wells, that’s $510,000. Then I take a deep breath and reflect on how 60 days is really just one day at a time, and 8000 km breaks down to about 185 km a day. Finally, 60 wells and $510,000 could also be reduced to 60 really wonderful people who will take ownership of one well.
