Canadian Cyclists Raising Funds For Trauma Healing in Rwanda
Toronto (May 09, 2013) – Canadian cyclists are gearing up for another amazing installment of one of our nation’s favorite annual cycling fundraisers, Bike for Bibles. Coordinated by the Canadian Bible Society (CBS), the event’s goal is to raise $150,000 to support trauma healing in Rwanda through “She’s My Sister”, a coalition of faith-based groups that uses Bible-based trauma-healing programs to bring hope to the most vulnerable people in war-torn Africa. The Canadian Bible Society is working to build reconciliation in the continent, giving hope, promoting peace and unity, based on the Bible and God’s love.
Bike for Bibles is cycling enthusiasts’ chance to experience fun, fellowship and fitness while changing the lives of those less fortunate. Each cyclist is asked to fundraise so that as much money can go to support the trauma healing campaign.
“Bike for Bibles raises funds for exciting projects where God’s Word is needed to touch people’s hearts,” says CBS National Director Ted Seres. “This is especially true in Rwanda, where murder, rape and violence have left more than one million dead and hundreds of thousands of orphans and widows.” The Scripture resources being distributed include testimonies from Canadian women that will inspire and bring hope to those who read them.
There’s a small registration fee per cyclist to cover meals, water, transportation, showers, swims and an official T-shirt.
By participating in Bike for Bibles, Canadians of all ages, walks of life and denominations achieve fitness, fun and fellowship with a Christian purpose – sharing The Word. For Life.
