Battle Against Hunger Bike Tour
September 8-10, 2017
We continue to celebrate a significant milestone with our exciting partnership between the Battle Against Hunger (BAH) Tour and the Diocese of New Jersey Jubilee Office. Last year we raised more than $25,000. Cyclist and walkers represented the following parishes:
- Christ Church-Cristo Rey – Trenton
- Iglesia San Jose – Elizabeth
- Augustine’s Church – Asbury Park
- Peter’s Church – Perth Amboy (WECARE WALK)
- Thomas’ Church – Glassboro
- Trinity Cathedral – Trenton
- Trinity Church – Asbury Park
- Trinity Church – Woodbridge
The Episcopal Christian Women (ECW) also participated, in partnership with the Diocesan Young Adult Ministry.
If interested in participating in BAH this year as a cyclist, you may contact Dave Oasis at firstname.lastname@example.org, lead rider for Trinity Trekkers of Trinity Church – Asbury Park. Cyclist are encouraged to practice with this group. If interested, please log into their Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/479760245733709/
Need Help to Do Your Own Thing in Your Own Area on Your Own Day?
GO FOR IT! Contact Canon Clara Gregory, our Diocesan Jubilee Officer, with your dreams and ideas. St. Peter’s in Perth Amboy does it with their We Care Walk. Why not you?
YOUR CHURCH DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A JUBILEE CENTER to participate in the fall fundraising frenzy. Our only requirement for you to use either of the Diocesan-Sponsored events to raise money, or to use our registration and fundraising software to support your own event, is that the proceeds must go directly to benefit the fight against hunger and its systemic causes.
