This year the Outreach for Hope Family Bike Ride is going "virtual" - meaning we will not gather for a one-day event, as in the past. This year, enjoy the outdoors safely - riding, running or walking when and where you like, while supporting Outreach for Hope partner ministries with your donations and fundraising!
Although we’ll miss gathering as a group with you this year, we hope that you will join us ‘virtually’ by registering; planning your own ride, run or walk (here are some suggestions); and participating in 25 fitness and fundraising challenges in honor of Outreach for Hope's 25th anniversary. Then share your experience via social media and ask friends & family to support Outreach for Hope by supporting you. Check out our blog for participant resources, and join our Facebook group to connect with other participants.
Outreach for Hope's partner ministries are depending on your support this year, more than ever. COVID-19 may keep us from assembling, but it cannot put a stop on the generous hearts of Wisconsinites! Please consider supporting us in the following ways:
Thank you for making a difference in thousands of lives!
For the past 25 years, Outreach for Hope has supported life-giving ministries that serve with the people of low-income communities in the Greater Milwaukee Synod, ELCA. These ministries not only provide help with daily necessities, but most importantly, they are centers in the heart of their communities for providing transformation and hope.
Your contributions to this event support grants funding for our Outreach for Hope partner ministries. Your donation will help support vital local programs in low-income neighborhoods in Southeast Wisconsin, including:
