Sponsor $1 for every mile. My goal is 45 miles during the month of October!
Team Brothers Biking for Congo is hosting a 45 mile bicycling challenge during the month of October to raise support for UCare4Congo.
Over the past 4 years, Team Brothers Biking for Congo has sponsored week-long summer rides totaling 1,636 miles and raising $51,021 for Paul Carlson Partnership’s Congo Clinic Initiative. Due to a major move from Michigan to Texas this past Spring for Team BBC Leader Pastor Dennis Carlson (and with the COVID pandemic thrown in on top of that) no BBC Ride had been planned for 2020.
Around the same time, Pastor Dennis was diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer. He began a 45-day radiation treatment plan on August 5 and the prognosis is good. With his doctor’s blessing, he was encouraged to keep biking. Dennis is currently well on his way to reaching his goal of biking 450 miles during his 45-day radiation treatment plan, currently scheduled to conclude on October 13. To celebrate the completion of his treatment on (or around) October 24, he hopes to ride 45 miles in one day—unless his body at that point is telling him to do it in two days!
UCare4Congo supports the entire Covenant Church of Congo medical system, which includes training medical professionals, providing medicines and supplies, improved infrastructure, and quality patient care. Our partners can deepen their holistic gospel ministry of caring for the whole person and entire communities through UCare4Congo.
If you are also grateful for the access to healthcare that you have where you live, Pastor Dennis is inviting you to join in, wherever you are, to support the most basic healthcare needs of the people of DR Congo through UCare4Congo.
