I participated with about 24 other United Methodists from around Western Pennsylvania as we completed the last leg of our 315-mile journey by bicycle from McKeesport, PA. to Washington D.C. just after dark on Friday, Oct. 4th. We started our trek on the Yough Trail at Boston United Methodist Church near McKeesport on Monday, Sept. 30th in the rain. During the journey, things heated up (96 degrees on the third day), but we enjoyed the scenery and camaraderie as we kept our goal in mind. Our goal was to raise money so any child who wanted to, can go to camp regardless of ability to pay. I thank you for your support! So far, you have raised $2,290 for camping!! The last few weeks during worship I have been wearing a robe in response to your donations.
Thank you again, and watch for the announcement that will come later about a “pig”!
