Malaria Campaign Inaugural Ride

by on June 3, 2013

What is one to do?  I set up this plan for people to make contributions to the ELCA Malaria Campaign for each mile I ride.  I woke up at 4:45 am to the sound of rain falling pretty steadily.  Had I not made this commitment, I might have decided to stay in bed.  But I’ve got an enemy that needs to be defeated … the malaria infected mosquito.

I pulled myself out of the nice warm bed, pulled on my cycling clothing, and climbed aboard the fixie for what would prove to be a damp ride.  An hour and 15 minutes later, I arrived back home soggy and content.

The pledges are few right now.  The project launch was not at a convenient time at the Assembly, but I fully expect more soon.  I’m putting the word out.

End of a damp ride.  Shower cap kept my head dry.
