Streets Alive Mission will be putting in the work for their Ride For Refuge event coming up on September 23rd.
The initiative is an all-ages bike ride or walk around Henderson Lake.
According to Jennifer Lepko, the chief development officer with the mission the goal this year is to raise $25,000 which will help benefit the Christian group’s Life Recovery Programs.
“We offer about 60 beds of abstinence-based, faith-based recovery programs. So we really want to move people out of addiction. And so the Ride for Refuge is really about supporting that programming. We offer housing. We- part of our programming is employment skills, life skills, and fully encompass the continuum of care for someone’s recovery journey. And so all the funds that come from the Ride for Refuge go directly into that programming. So our Genesis Women’s Life Recovery Program and Exodus Men’s Life Recovery Program.”
