Welcome to My Page
My Mileage Goal: 3000 miles
My Primary Activity: Cycling
Due to COVID-19, Fuller Center for Housing has suspended sending volunteer teams around the world. These canceled volunteer events threaten Fuller Center’s mission to provide healthy, decent homes worldwide. I've joined an online community to stay active and address one of the largest causes of endemic diseases around the world: poor shelter. We're collectively undertaking 50,000 miles to virtually traverse the globe in 80 days. I'm raising $7,000 to build a home in Lampang, Thailand.
Globally, houses of mud walls and floors combined with poor sanitation create an environment for life-threatening diseases like Chagas, severe diarrhea, cholera, typhoid, and malaria. Diarrhea alone claims the lives of more than 800,000 children every year (Source: CDC).
The work of The Fuller Center for Housing seeks to address these issues. It's an ecumenical Christian 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping families of all backgrounds have decent, healthy homes in 70 communities around the USA and in 19 countries around the world.
Fuller Center families put in sweat equity for their homes, and pay it forward with a no-profit, no-interest loan. As I stay active and put in some sweat of my own, will you join me in supporting the wonderful work that they do?
Thank you very much, and stay healthy and well!
