Vision On Wheels

Below is an interesting cross county bike project sponsored by Cedarville University.

About the Project

Vision On Wheels is a cross country bike trip designed to raise support and awareness for Fisheni – an African village in Zambia Africa. The Women of Vision chapter at Cedarville University has committed to supporting the Fisheni Village over the next 10 years. Their work focuses specifically on health, literacy, and water related issues of this AIDS torn village. By touring the US, Vision on Wheels will partner with Women of Vision and Cedarville University in an attempt to help bring support and awareness for the Fisheni Village.

Two riders, Jason Briggs and Derek Stambaugh, are planning on biking from the middle of May to the early weeks of July. Their route will take them from the Pacific to the Atlantic with stops along the way in places like the Grand Canyon, Colorado Springs, St. Louis, Cedarville, and Philadelphia.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 for Fisheni. All money that is donated will go towards the community development work and will be applied by World Vision and the community leaders of Fisheni.
