On Friday, September 11, Jeff Nicolet will ride his motorcycle from South Bend, Ind., to the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan, all in an effort to fulfill a need he saw. For a decade now, Jeff has had a strong desire to support the kind of outreaches and missions that Feeding The Nations (FTN) is involved in around the world. The only thing was, he wanted to take a different approach. And, this year he’s celebrating the 10th anniversary of taking that unique approach.
“I felt a responsibility and ownership to take food and hope to those countries, but I didn’t have a way to bridge the gap between where I am in Indiana and where the food goes to other countries,” Jeff said. “I thought the best way to demonstrate that gap would be to do a symbolic ride to the biggest nearby bridge and ask for support.”
Jeff decided to combine his desire to help the hungry and his enjoyment of motorcycles by challenging himself to create the Ride to the Bridge for Feeding The Nations. The ride covers 1,000 miles and takes a total of 20 hours round trip.
By doing this over the years, Jeff has raised thousands of dollars for FTN by asking others to support his ride through donations to FTN.
