Ride for Missions supports the work of Rosedale Mennonite Missions, helping send workers to parts of the world where few people have heard the good news about Jesus. People who are passionate about missions and about cycling have found a way to combine those interests and support RMM in the process. As the ride has gained momentum over the past eight years, it has become a vital part of RMMís funding.
In 2013, 63 RFM riders covered 350 miles from Waynesboro, Virginia to Belleville, Pennsylvania and raised a record $117,000!
Next summer, from July 26-30, 2014 we invite you to join the ninth annual Ride for Missions, departing from Ashtabula, Ohio and ending in Castorland, New York (roughly 384 miles). Come enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship with other cyclists as you meet a challenge together in support of missions. Anyone can be part of the ride, regardless of physical condition or interest in cycling (those who donít take part themselves can still support riders and spread the word about the event).
There is no registration fee for the ride itself, but cyclists are asked to raise financial support from sponsors ($100 minimum). Lunches are provided. Other meals will be at the riderís expense. Depending on the level of corporate sponsorship, lodging expenses may be subsidized to help riders with cost.
Registration will open Feburary 1, 2014. You can find out more information about the 2014 ride as it becomes available by following the RFM Ride for Missions Facebook group or by e-mailing RMM at email@example.com.
You must register by June 25, 2014 to participate.
Bring all pledge sheets to the ride kickoff.
2013 Corporate Sponsorship
All proceeds from the ride support the Missions Day Offering.
While riders solicit personal sponsorships, we need sponsors to help cover the costs of the event—support and gear, lodging, T-shirts, food, etc. The rest of the funds go toward RMM’s Missions Day Offering. If you are interested in being a sponsor, contact Denise Mast at firstname.lastname@example.org, or download the sponsorship form to the right.
