1,600 miles. 17 days. 1 mission.
One of our clients who combines his passion for charity organizations and bike riding is at it again. Real estate developer Jim Frey and four of his friends are going on a 17-day bike ride from Minneapolis to New Orleans to raise $200,000 for the Women’s Global Cancer Alliance (WGCA), a Louisville-based organization that helps women in developing countries live healthier lives.
Jim’s team, known as the FivexFives, begin their ride on October 15. They plan to cover 95 miles a day for 17 days along the Mississippi River, concluding on Halloween. Each team member has been affected in some way by cancer through friends and relatives who serve as the inspiration for their ride.
Three years ago, Jim completed a nine-day solo bike ride benefitting WGCA that raised $80,000. Jim is excited about the 2017 trek that more than doubles the monetary goal for WGA and doubles the first ride’s distance.
“I have participated in many fundraising rides over the years, but this one is particularly close to my heart,” Jim said. “WGCA is doing great work across the world to treat and defeat cervical cancer, and I’m very proud to do something to support their cause.”
