Paul Anderson bike ride

Written by  Friday, 25 July 2014 09:22

  From July 31 through August 6, five current residents, alumni and supporters of the Paul Anderson Youth Home, will bike 560 miles through six Georgia cities to honor the home’s founder, Olympic legend and “World’s Strongest Man,” Paul Anderson.

 

  The Annual Paul Anderson Cycling Challenge honors Anderson’s historic ride from Vidalia to Omaha when he first launched the home in 1961. Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy made the first donation to Anderson as he set out on his inaugural ride.

 

  The group will ride the 560-mile route through Vidalia, Statesboro, Augusta, Athens, Jonesboro and Macon, raising awareness and support along the way and in surrounding neighborhoods. The PACC seeks to raise awareness of the transformative work the youth home does in troubled teens lives and its preventive resources and events for parents around the world.

 

  Drew Read, Paul Anderson Youth Home Chief Operating Officer and the leader of the cycling pack, says this challenge is one of the most transformative experiences in the lives of the young men, who are at the home as an alternative to jail.
