PPP 2021 Was a Success!

P4H’s 9th annual Pedal Past Poverty was another one for the books. With all the challenges—health screenings, social distancing, hygiene, some virtual participants, date, time and location changes, and an outdoor/open air venue on a cool spring day—the riders and volunteers had a great time joining our staff for this exciting stationary bike race.

The event raised over $100K to support families in the region who have faced homelessness!

Vusa Bentley—local endurance athlete— planked for 3 hours, her longest plank yet. Bentley explained that this event for her was the first of many planks she hopes to do across the country. Her long-term mission is to complete one-hour planks in all 50 states.

We at P4H owe a huge debt of gratitude to all the sponsors, fundraisers, volunteers and business partners: Blue Earth County; Mankato Family YMCA; MSU; Kato Moving & Storage; OPS Clinics; PrintWear Graphics; LJP Waste & Recycling; Nicollet Bike Shop; Key City Bikes; Pepsi; River Bend Business Products; Kwik Trip; Keepers RV; CTS; KEYC; Radio Mankato; and many more!

We are currently seeking sponsorships for the 10th Annual event, which we will hold in 2022. Contact 507.387.2115 x4 if you would like to pledge sponsorship for Pedal Past Poverty 2022.

What is Pedal Past Poverty?

Pedal Past Poverty is a one-day and one-of-a-kind stationary bike race. This fun and energetic fundraiser is Partners for Affordable Housing’s signature event.

How does it work?

During the PPP event, there are up to 40 teams, ten riders each, organized by companies and individuals interested in ending the issues of homelessness and affordable housing in the Mankato area. Riders ask their family, friends and others to sponsor and donate to their team. Teams then compete for a broad array of wild and wonderful prizes based on money raised and miles biked on race day.

Who are the real winners?

Our Mankato neighbors who are experiencing a temporary housing crisis and are guests of the Theresa House, Union Street Place or Welcome Inn.
