According to the 2013 Point-In-Time survey conducted by the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative (MDHI), there are approximately 921 youth between the ages 13 to 24 on the streets in Denver on any given night. Nationally, there is an estimated 575,000 – 1.6 million youth who experience homelessness each year in the United States. As all my expenses will be covered from corporate sponsorship, 100% of donations raised from this ride will go directly towards Providence Network. All donations will support Providence Networks effort to focus on the growing population of youth and young adults, including the operational expenses for a new FirstStep home for young adults ages 18-29. Sponsoring me with a tax deductible donation of a penny ($40.00), nickel ($200), dime ($400), dollar ($4000), or ten dollars ($40,000) per mile will help to save the lives of many young adults suffering from homelessness, abuse, mental illness, or addictions. This is a growing, and desperately under served population that needs your help. My life, and the lives of many others that have been restored by Providence Network, stand as proof that Providence Network offers a solution that really works.
This trip will require the help of corporate sponsorship in order to assist with the estimated $20,000 in expenses for flights, film equipment, lodging, food, biking, and camping gear for the 90 day fundraiser. If you or someone you know has a business please consider sponsoring me to enable 100% of personal donations to go directly to Providence Network.
In exchange for sponsorship, I will put your corporate logo on my jersey, website, and other promotional material, and will plug your company in the film. Please make a donation in the form of a check made out to Providence Network (with Bridge to Bridge in the memo line) and send them to Providence Network, 801 Logan St. Denver, CO 80203. You will promptly receive a tax receipt from Providence Network, and we will work with you to get your corporate logo on my jerseys and all promotional material.
