Why I Ride
Blog Post By Chef John McConnell
In May, I will pedal 100-miles in the Chefs Cycle event to raise money for No Kid Hungry, an organization whose mission is to abolish childhood hunger in America.
I am proud to work for a business that supports these endeavors. To date, Chefs Cycle has raised over $2 million dollars. Each dollar raised provides a healthy and nutritious meal for a child in need. This organization has made it their primary mission to provide meals to children to allow them a fighting chance at education, nourishment and a glimpse of hope amidst their community.
No child in America should grow up hungry. But too many kids in our country don’t have the food they need to thrive. For the past six years, Chefs Cycle has engaged culinary talents who want to push their physical limits while raising funds and awareness in support of this incredible organization.
This year, our support is needed more than ever. Millions of vulnerable children did not have access to the healthy meals they depend on as the coronavirus closed schools nationwide. No Kid Hungry stepped up to help fill the need and now needs our help to continue the support.
I ride for the children in America who do not know where their next meal is coming from. I ride for the children that are born into a world that is less fortunate, filled with less opportunity and uncertainty. I ride to give back and aid those who may not be able to take care of themselves.
