Bike Ride

2017 Change Makers Bike Ride

Please join us for the annual Change Makers Bike Ride in the Eastern ND Synod to raise awareness and receive offerings for the ELCA Hunger program! To connect the 500th anniversary of the Reformation with our ride, EIGHT rides will take place on the same two days - June 23-24 - one ride in each of the eight conferences of our synod. Routes of approximately 60 miles in each conference will add up to more than 500 miles! People can chose to bike a segment or the entire two-day ride.

Besides riding, how can you help? The goal is to raise $5000 in each of the eight conferences. Churches are asked to take an offering for ELCA Hunger prior to the ride, and present checks for the offering to the bikers along the route (see below on how to donate).

WELCA groups are also encouraged to present offerings for hunger.
