The Ride To Beat Hunger's Sponsorship Presentation

  1. 1. Hunger is real. It affects real people in real places, around the world and here at home. We are determined to make an impact in the battle with hunger, and we need your help to make it happen.
  2. 2. Our assignment. Between April 22 and May 22, 2012, Vero Beach minister Scott Alexander will undertake a demanding physical challenge – a 3,300-mile cross country bike trip dedicated to focusing attention on the severe problems of hunger.
  3. 3. 1 man. 2 wheels.3,300 miles. 925,000,000 hungry people. And a corps of passionate volunteers determined to make a difference. So how can you get involved?
  4. 4. We need sponsors.The success of this endeavor will be a special tribute to the important Sponsors who help us get the word out and reach our ambitious $50,000+ goal. Let’s talk about… • Our Mission • Our Beneficiaries • The Rider & The Ride • Why You Should Help • How You Can Help
  5. 5. Our Mission.Beginning on Sunday, April 22, 2012 in Costa Mesa, Californiaand ending Tuesday, May 22, 2012 in Vero Beach, Florida, Rev.Scott Alexander will bicycle all 3,300 miles, challengingorganizations and individuals of the Vero Beach communityand beyond to donate money to help beat hunger – bothlocally and globally. Friends, neighbors, and concerned peoplewill join Rev. Alexander for all or part of the last four days ofthe ride, “bringing him home” from Savannah to Vero Beach.Our goal is to raise $50,000-$100,000 – with half going to ourlocal Harvest Food and Outreach Center and half going to StopHunger Now, an established international organization whichpackages millions of simple meal packets to be distributedaround the world.
  6. 6. Our Mission.Two highlights of The Ride To Beat Hunger will be…• On May 22, Rev. Alexander will arrive for a “Homecoming Splash Party” presented by Waldos Restaurant located inside the Historic Driftwood Inn, adjacent to Vero Beach’s Humiston Park. Hundreds of people (perhaps even more) will assemble at Waldo’s for the arrival rally, demonstrating their commitment to beating hunger and their willingness to do even more, like…• On June 9, 2012, Stop Hunger Now will send a truckload of food products and a “meal packet assembly team” to Vero Beach, where we will organize volunteers of all ages in a one day effort to create up to 100,000 meal packets for hungry children around the world.
  7. 7. Our Mission.An energetic corps of Rotarian volunteers from Indian RiverCounty have undertaken to enlist the support andinvolvement from scores of other Rotary Clubs along the3,300 mile trek. Other groups, near and far, are lending their support as well, including the Vero Beach Ministerial Association. Already, a talented, energetic volunteer team is supporting this ride and encouraging our neighbors (and anyone else who will listen) to come along and help beat hunger.
  8. 8. Our Beneficiaries.Funds raised by The Ride To Beat Hunger will be shared equally between two organizations who have demonstrated their ability to beat hunger, locally and around the world. • Our local Harvest Food and Outreach Center (harvestfoodandoutreach.org) • The international group Stop Hunger Now (stophungernow.org) For more information about these two important organizations, visit our websiteat http://TheRideToBeatHunger.org.
