WACO (April 23, 2013)--Bicyclists from across the state will work to end hunger by spreading awareness and biking about 300 miles from The Woodlands to Waxahachie, stopping through Cameron and Waco on the way.
The “Bike Out Hunger” ride will take about six days and will include a Friday morning breakfast with Mission Waco and about 100 homeless people.
Riders will arrive in Cameron and Waco Thursday and will continue on to Waxahachie after the breakfast Friday.
Breakfast will be held at First Lutheran Church in Waco.
Money raised from the ride will go directly to feed the local hungry population.
Waco Regional Baptist Association Executive Director Tim Randolph will be one of the riders to participate in the annual event organized by Rand Jenkins.
Mission Waco provides meals six days a week and has been offering Friday morning meals to the hungry for more than 20 years.
The meals are cooked by church members from several local churches.
