The goal is to cycle a bit more than 120 miles from Long Beach to the Mexican border to raise funds for Pathways to Independence!
I cherish the independence and freedom I have been blessed with and Thanksgiving is a good time to help another soul find thier path to independence.
Here is more about Pathways to Independence from one of their young women:
Pathways to Independence is a non profit that provides health care, mentorship, therapy, and a complete college education for young woman who come from a traumatized background. The woman often come from history’s of sexual, physical, alcohol or verbal abuse. Essentially, Pathways assumes the role of a parent by providing any need the women have to be successful in graduating and becoming contributing members of society.
