In 2011, I was a part of a journey that forever changed my life. Along with 14 others, I bicycled from San Diego, CA to Virgina Beach, VA for an organization called Blood:Water Mission.
After reading Don Miller’s, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, I knew that I had to be a part of this journey. I had never bicycled more than 5 miles (I suggest training more than that if you want to ride across America), I’m not the most athletic person in the world, and I was never one to embrace any sort of conflict/challenge in my life.
After bicycling for 2 1/2 months, I finally finished the journey with a whole new view on life and culture. One of the best experiences I have ever had.
The cycling campaign was created to raise money and awareness for clean water & HIV/AIDS support in Africa.
