MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) -Partners for Housing hosted its 10th annual Pedal Past Poverty event Saturday, which supports Mankato and St. Peter emergency homeless shelters.

Coming off of a record-breaking 2021 fundraiser that raised over $100-thousand, this year’s event raised over $80-thousand.

“I think people are just, especially after COVID I think people are just reflecting on all that they have and how life is challenging for people who are without. So I think people are really interested in supporting us and our mission and the work that we do to support people experiencing homelessness or with housing instability and a lot of other barriers that they experience,” said Jen Theneman of Partners for Housing.

All teams raised money before the event itself, and donations to the cause will continue to be accepted online.
