I Ride For Ben

Recently, I missed out on the chance to be an encouragement to someone because I didn’t feel that what I could offer was adequate. Well, this morning a new situation was presented to me and I determined I would not make the same mistake twice. For that reason, I’m asking you to join with me and others in the cycling community to help Ben Renkema.

Special thanks goes to Vince Schmidt and Finish Strong for jumping on this quickly to help meet the needs of Ben and his family. I Do It For is simply coming along side them to help encourage others to participate. I trust you will.

Ben RenkemaBen suffered a major cycling crash on Saturday, February 9 in the Category Pro 1/2 race at the Hincapie Spring Training Series. Ben broke his collar bone and shattered his scapula. Unfortunately, Ben’s family does not currently have any health insurance. The Finish Strong Elite Cycling Team [link] along with Globalbike [link] (Ben’s race team) are partnering together to help raise funds for his medical expenses.

That is where I Do It For comes in. We are giving a pound of Low Cadence Coffee to those people who give $40 or more to help Ben. Simply to go to IRideFor.org/Ben [link] and fill out the simple form. You will then be directed to the Finish Strong donation page where you can fulfill your pledge. We will then be in contact with you to arrange for the delivery of those peppy little beans on a mission… Low Cadence Coffee.

Tell your friends to join in! They can give and receive the Thank You! coffee from IRideFor.org/Ben [link] or just go directly to the Finish Strong donation page [link].

I just donated. Will you?
