The 27th Annual Anchor House Ride for Runaways
|On July 9, 2005, I will be one of
two hundred cyclists on a seven-day 500-mile bike ride from Fort McHenry, Maryland to Trenton, New
Last year Anchor House riders raised over $400,000, over 70% of which
went directly to support Anchor House programs. Each rider must collect
a minimum of $750 in donations for the ride. Please make a donation
in my name to help Anchor House continue to provide invaluable services
to thousands of children and their families.
