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.
