Race for Congo!

7 Days
8 Riders
2,776 Miles
Peace for Congo
The race is on!

World Relief and Fellowship Missionary Church have partnered together to accomplish an extraordinary goal. They have witnessed first hand the violence, hunger and conflict that is ripping Congo piece by piece, family by family, person by person apart. Congo is urgently praying for peace and we want to help.

The Race for Congo is a team relay-riding 24 hours a day for 7 days across the United States. The riders will have to average a speed of 18MPH to complete this on time. Was it mentioned that there are mountains in this route?!

There are 8 riders on this team and you can meet each one of them on the World Relief Bio page.

This ride will be held from August 1 – August 8th to raise awareness for Congo and $43,000 for peace building initiatives. Your donations are welcome and can be accepted on the World Relief – Race for Congo website. You can even donate in the name of a specific rider from Rider’s Bio Page.

Join me in promoting awareness of this event!

What a great way to raise awareness/money. I certainly couldn't bike that far, LOL!
