It is very special to see our young men today honor Paul’s commitment to Christ and to the Home on the Annual Bike Ride,” said Glenda Anderson Leonard, Co-Founder and President of PAYH.

Each of the bicyclists exemplifies the mission of PAYH. They have overcome issues with discipline, substance abuse, legal trouble and emotional instability. Through education, mentoring, counseling and a second chance at life through Christ, they are trusted to take on the severe physical and mental challenge of a 550-mile ride.

These young men rely on sponsorships to complete the ride. You can donate through the PAYH donation page, or text BIKERIDE to 71777. To see an updated list of sponsors, visit the bike ride page of the PAYH website.
