The 500 Mile Anchor House Ride

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 Jersey.

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.
