Bob and I have enjoyed wintering in Florida for the last 15 years. We were shocked to learn that there are hungry children right here in our backyard. I wanted to do something about this and became involved with the Pan-Florida Challenge for Hungry Kids.

I first learned about PFC while volunteering to pack meals with my church, Unity in the Community. Last year, I stepped up to the challenge and rode 186 miles across Florida. I registered again this year and will ride 190 miles. Why do I do this? To feed hungry kids. Every dollar I raise will go to the purchase and distribution of weekend meals for students.

Please support my ride. I and thousands of hungry kids will thank you.


The Pan-Florida Challenge is for HUNGRY KIDS


Together we RIDE to END Kids’ Hunger - 1 meal at a time.  Our challenge goal is 2,000,000 meals.


Who’s hungry?  Tiny kid’s faces paint the new portrait of Hunger.

  • 1 out of 4 Local South Florida Kids Suffer without enough food
  • PFC Rider-Heroes will ride past 79,030 hungry kids across 7 Counties
  • Chronic Malnutrition afflicts 22% of all Haitian Kids under 5 years old


We can cure kids' hunger - 1 meal at a time. Join us!

Thousands of hungry kids will THANK YOU.
