Annual bicycle ride to support missions

HARRINGTON — Around 50 cyclists will be departing from Harrington July 30 as they loop their way around 375 miles of the Delmarva landscape back to Greenwood with Ride for Missions. These riders are not just participating in this annual ride for the sake of exercise or enjoyment, but to raise support for missions.

Based out of Columbus, Ohio, Rosedale Mennonite Missions (RMM) exists to “establish locally led fellowships that will spread the word about Jesus to their communities,” prioritizing people groups who have never heard the gospel. RMM currently has workers serving in the Middle East, North Africa, Latin America, Spain, East Asia, and Thailand.

“The thing that makes Ride for Missions (RFM) special is that it was started and driven by members of our churches,” says RMM’s Director of Partner Development, Andrew Miller. “It never was an organization-driven fundraiser, but a people-driven fundraiser to bring transformational change to our world.”

This year marks the 11th annual RFM. Over the years, a total of 619 riders and volunteers have covered over 180,000 collective miles in 11 different states, raising almost $850,000 in support of missions.
