Thanks from Partners in Mission

First Pres, we couldn’t do it without you!

Partners in Mission thanks everyone involved with helping to support a successful August 1st Bike to the Lake (BTL) event this year. Funds raised from the event will help support students and staff at Kamwenge Secondary and Vocational School in Uganda.

This 7th annual BTL certainly was different. Due to Covid-19 concerns about transporting riders by bus, and road construction along the route, riders took the Illinois Prairie Path and Fox River Trail from First Pres back to Two Hound Red restaurant in Glen Ellyn.¬† No one ever saw a lake, though the Fox River was in view along this year’s route.

From First Pres: 22 riders, 25 volunteers, 50 yard sign hosts, and many sponsors worked extra hard to make this year’s event a success.

A special shout-out to the entire church staff led by Pastors Chris and Jonathan for their full support in this difficult year.

We’ll see you next year on August¬†7.
