RAYTOWN, Mo. - Dozens of bicyclists are braving summer heat across the country in a nationwide ride for charity.
Dubbed “Bike and Build,” the cyclists, all 28 of them, are stopping in different cities to lend a hand building Habitat for Humanity.
They started their journey earlier this year in Virginia Beach, and will end 3,000 miles later at Cannon Beach in Oregon.
“I believe that a basic living situation is just a necessity that all Americans deserve and if I can help in any way, I’m more than willing to,” cyclist Arden Stewart said.
Each rider has raised $4,500 during the trip, with proceeds to Habitat for Humanity.
