#CycleToSynod – Bike Ride to Assembly to Benefit ELCA World Hunger


Breaking the Cycle of Hunger

Fundraiser for ELCA World Hunger

The Northern IL Synod invites you to join us for the 1st Annual #CycleToSynod, taking place June12–15, 2018. The route is tentatively set to start at Trinity Lutheran Church in Rockford and end at the Synod Assembly at Augustana College in Rock Island.

Along the way, we will visit with area churches, stay at congregations, and experience the farmland of Northern IL! Together we will raise awareness of hunger issues facing God’s people and funds to support ELCA World Hunger. Riders may ride the full route or just a portion of the ride. Join us, as together we work to eradicate world hunger and give our legs and hearts a great workout in the process!

Riders of all ages are invited to participate. Teen riders will arrive in time to attend the Northern Illinois Synod Youth Assembly on Thursday, June 14 at Augustana College if they wish.

Donations can be made online at nisynod.org/cycletosynod
