Member of team: Team Malta Pan Florida Challenge

Welcome to my fund raising page for the Pan Florida Challenge!

Just over a year ago, my wife and I decided to spend more time in Naples, Florida and like all the places we have lived, I feel it is important to give back to the community where we spend time throughout the year. Many of you supported me when I solo hiked the State of Vermont back in 2005 to raise money for Kids in Crisis and I know that the money raised for that event, helped out the children in the State of CT immensely. You will be happy to know that I have found a new way to suffer, but this time on a 180+ mile bike ride over two days in the hot, Florida sun during the first weekend in March! Here are some statistics of how challenging this is for children:

  • 1 out of 4 Local Florida Kids Suffer without enough food
  • PFC Riders ride past 79,030 hungry kids across 7 Florida Counties
  • Kids suffering from poor nutrition miss more school, suffer developmental setbacks, social and behavioral challenges - all because they're hungry.
  • Chronic Malnutrition affects 22% of all Haitian Kids under 5 years old

As a Knight of Malta, a catholic lay order that is over 900 years old, all Knights have commited to live our charism by defending our catholic faith and to help the sick and the poor. What better way to serve those in need, than to feed those are going without. The goal this year for this ride, is to serve 2 million meals to children who are need. More importantly, 100% of your donations will go directly to providing meals to the kids thanks to over 30 sponsors who are underwriting the cost to run this event. A big thank you to them!

I will be riding this event with another Knight, Chris Weldon on "Team Malta" and our goal is to feed as many children this year in the state of Florida, so please give generously.

With gratitude,
