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. In 2009 NCU was the lead sponsor of another Venture Expeditions campaign, The Ride:Well Tour. The Ride:Well Tour was composed of a team of cyclists who bicycled from Los Angeles to Washington DC, raising funds and awareness for Blood:Water Mission (B:WM) and the 1,000 Wells Project, an initiative established to build wells in 1,000 underdeveloped African communities.
