Our kids wanted a way that they could help the people of Haiti so we thought it would be fun for them to find a way to earn their own money to donate. Since they're kids and don't have a lot of ways to earn money, we thought a bike-a-thon would be right up their alley. We're asking for pledges for each lap they finish on Saturday Feb. 6th @ 10:30a.m. We're going to have a track set up around our church parking lot where the kids will be timed and their laps counted. We will be doing 20 laps.
ex) if you donate $.25 a lap and they finish all 20 laps, that would be $5.00. If you pledge $.15 a lap and they only finish 15 laps then that would be $2.25. You get the idea.
Our goal is to earn a little money and then donate it. The way we have chosen to donate is through our church's humanitarian program. If you go to www.newsroom.lds.org, there are articles on all the things being done by this program. 100% will go to Haiti relief since this is a non-profit organization.
Thank you for helping us in our efforts to teach our children that no matter how old you are, you can serve and make a difference. God bless you and remember to keep the people and children of Haiti in your prayers.

SO THIS IS THE LETTER WE PASSED OUT TO A FEW NEIGHBORS. WE'RE SO EXCITED TO HAVE A LITTLE BIKE-A-THON WITH A FEW OTHER FAMILIES WE KNOW. OUR KIDS WANTED TO INVITE THEIR BEST FRIENDS FAMILIES TO DO IT WITH US.
OUR GOAL IS $100!!!! ISAAC IS ON FIRE!!!!! MAKAYLA'S A LITTLE SHY ABOUT ASKING. SHE SAID THAT SHE'LL ASK HER TEACHERS AND PRINCIPLES.
IF ANYONE'S INTERESTED IN PLEDGING THE KIDS JUST LET US KNOW.
