SPEED THE LIGHT FUNDRAISER
1,000 Miles for Speed the Light
Hey everyone! Pastor Greg is wanting to do something special this year to raise awareness and money for Speed the Light. Weather depending, he is going to attempt to ride his Harley V-rod 1000 miles in less than 24 hours sometime between June 10th and the 14th. He will be riding from his home town in Homer, Alaska to Nenana, Alaska and back again, all in less than 24 hours!
To travel 1000 miles in one day at 55 miles per hour, it would take him approximately 18 hours and 10 minutes to complete that trip. That is without stopping for anything or slowing down for traffic. Pastor Greg will have 14 fuel stops. If each stop takes about 5 minutes, that would add an extra hour and 10 minutes to his travel time. He has ridden this route many times on his bike but never in one day before. It won’t be easy! His hope is that you would partner with him on this journey with prayer and financially support Speed The Light.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Even the small things help.
Prayer is the very thing that empowers God’s people to do extraordinary things for Him. I am going to need some of that power and help. The time that I will be traveling is a very busy time for tourism in our state and there are a ton of motor homes traveling our highways. They typically travel slow and back up traffic making it difficult to maintain a good speed necessary to complete my journey.
If you would sponsor me on a mile to mile basis, we could together bring light to someone who has been living in the darkness of sin. In other words, if you support me for $1 a mile, you would be giving $1000 to Speed the Light. If that is too much for you, 10 cents per mile would bring $100 for Speed the Light. You get the picture. No amount is too much or too small.
My goal is to raise $4 per mile in a day for Speed the light. It all goes to helping someone in our world hear about the saving grace of Jesus. I believe every person on our planet has the right to hear about what Jesus did to provide salvation for them. Will you help me help them hear?
