Support Kerri in Bike and Build 2009!

This Summer I will spend nine weeks volunteering with an organization called Bike and Build. I’m going to ride my bike from Jacksonville Florida to San Francisco California, 3534 miles! Along the way we spend time building houses with Habitat for Humanity across the country, including one week in Louisiana. We will also spend time educating and spreading the word about the importance of affordable housing in local communities, and offer safe riding seminars to children. The experience should be very rewarding and amazing from every aspect.

Following hurricane Katrina’s devastating impact on the Gulf Coast in 2005, Bike & Build re-routed Southern U.S. in 2006 to join the ongoing rebuilding effort in the Gulf Coast. The second week of the trip will be spent building in areas that are still in need of hurricane reconstruction. From there the group continues their trek West onto the ranges of Northern Texas, the deserts of the South West and, eventually, the coast of Northern California.

Please consider joining this group to show your support for the cause, as well as for my journey across the country. When the time comes, you can follow my blog if you’d like! <a href=""></a>;

At this time you can go to <a href=""></a>; for more information or to make a donation under my name. My fundraising goal is 5,000 to help with affordable housing! I'd appreciate any help you can give... it adds up quick :) .
Testimonial we received: &quot;Kerri goes to my school (UMB for Social work as well) and is an awesome motivated person! If there is any way you can help or encourage, feel free to do so.&quot;

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
