Just+Hope Tour "Brakes" in the Twin Cities
Minneapolis, MN- Minneapolis, MN- Venture Expeditions’ Just+Hope Northern Tour continues to push forward as the team of riders makes its way from Seattle to New York. Last week the team landed in the Twin Cities where they provided opportunities for the community to connect. Since setting off in mid June, the team has logged over 1,500 miles while raising awareness about the reality of modern day slavery, speaking to area churches and local communities along the way.
On July 18, 2010 the Just+Hope team held an event called Group Ride in the Twin Cities. Group Ride encouraged area residents to come out and bike with the Just+Hope team while also riding for a great cause. A day earlier a few of the riders were invited to talk on air at 95.3 Praise FM to discuss their cause, share some of the stories from the ride, and promote the Group Ride event.
Group Ride was a great success that saw many come out and support the cause along with a solid number of individuals who biked from St. Paul to Stillwater. After a short stay in the Twin Cites the Just+Hope team will be continuing their journey to New York, making various stops in cities and communities along the way.
As the lead sponsor of the 2010 tour, North Central University is pleased to contribute to this cause through prayer and financial support. NCU is also proud to see alumni and current students taking time out of their summer schedules to participate in this amazing effort.
Venture Expeditions is a non-profit organization that sponsors biking and hiking trips to raise funds for worthy causes. Over the past 7 years, Venture has sent out dozens of teams, raising over $700,000 for projects working to free the world of poverty, slavery and injustice.
