Outreach to Haiti Bike Ride: '80 for Haiti'

On Monday, October 10th, a team of cyclists from Outreach to Haiti will begin the 8th Annual Bike Ride to Rebuild. The team will ride 337 miles over 5 days and the course planned is a “virtual trip” across the country of Haiti. The purpose of the ride is to raise awareness and funds to support the mission of the Diocese of Norwich Outreach to Haiti. 

As in past years, Jim Hubert of East Hampton will join the team of riders. Jim turns 80 years old in October and plans to cover 80 miles of the course over 2 days. We are calling his legs of the ride “80 for Haiti.” Jim is busy preparing and sometimes adds—  25-mile rides with one of his 11 grandchildren—to his training schedule.

When asked why this event is important to him, without hesitation Jim says “The Haitian people inspire me with their perseverance and trust in God. Raising funds to support Outreach programs is my small way to help."

We are grateful to all of our friends and supporters. Please keep Haiti and its people in your prayers. For more information, please visit our website www.outreachtohaiti.org or call us at 860-800-3601.
