Fundraising Update

It's been almost three weeks since the pedaling stopped, but donations have kept rolling in!  As of right now, the Bike For Bricks project has raised a total of: $21,858.70!

During the trip, we cycled a total of 6813.27km each, minus 49km (Kyle's bike hitchhiked/took rides four times) for a grand total of 20,390.81km.  That means that we have raised $1.07 per kilometre of cycling, 7% more than our goal!  

You can still donate by clicking the big PayPal button there ---------->

Thanks Mary and Anna for organizing, and Dennis and Helen for hosting!
On Saturday, we had an opportunity to get-together and celebrate the success of the B4B project.  It was great to see everyone who supported us throughout the trip, from home through the internet and through prayer, but also from the road: Brent and Kathy Bauman, Julie, Keenan and Carly, and Dennis and Helen.
We probably could have done it without you, but it wouldn't have been easy, fun, or as successful by a number of measures.  

Finally, a big thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Heartwood Place over the past six months.  We strongly believe in their work, and we are proud to have helped contribute in a small way to the next Heartwood project.  If you are inspired to continue your support for the Heartwood Place, join us for the 7th Annual Amazing Race for Heartwood Place!  Jordan and Kyle will be out representing the B4B, but with Tyler in Greece, we're still looking for a few more...any takers?  We know how to fix a flat...


  1. Congratulations on reaching your fundraising goal

  2. Thanks. As donations keep coming, now we're up to $22,558.70, or over $1.10 per km :)
