Malaria Campaign Year End Report

by on June 3, 2014

In June, 2013 I offered the opportunity to people to pledge funds to the ELCA Malaria Campaign by way of my cycling.   The stated goal was 6,000-8,000 miles of riding over the course of one year.  That year is now over, and here are the numbers and some interesting details to the cycling and the fund raising.

  • Miles ridden: 6,878
  • Funds pledged & Contributed: Greater than $8,000 (still being calculated, with additional contributions coming in)
  • Longest Ride: 385 miles (over 2 days in North Carolina in October 2013)
  • Number of days out on the bike: 201
  • Highest Temperature: 98° F
  • Lowest Temperature: 6° F
  • Number of rides below freezing: 31
  • During the year, my bike frame cracked and it had to be replaced.
  • I rode in dark, sunny, cloudy, rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, fog, and in downpours.
  • I crashed my bike twice, but was not hit by any cars.

And so this chapter ends.  I’ll be promoting a new opportunity to participate in some additional fund raising in the coming days.

Meanwhile, if you wish to make a contribution to the ELCA Malaria Campaign, click here.  Mark the Delaware-Maryland Synod in the drop down box in the “Synod Field”.  If you would also kindly enter my name (Earl Janssen) in the “Honor Of” field, I’d appreciate it.
