Texas 4000 Visits!
22 Jun 2015
Each year a group of college students from UT Austin choose to spend their summer a little differently than most college students. Instead of traveling Europe or earning extra pocket money, these amazing kids get on their bikes and ride from Austin, TX to Anchorage, AK to raise money and awareness for cancer. For the past 5 years, Brent’s Place has been honored to be one of their stops along the way. Each June we open our doors to invite these amazing and inspirational kids into our building, serve them breakfast, and then spend time getting to know them. The reasons why they ride are as varied as the youths themselves, but one common thread is always clear… they ride to make a difference, and make a difference they do. This year we were honored to be the recipients of a $17,000 grant from them!
The donation they provide is amazing, but each year the passion and hope they bring to our families is absolutely invaluable. We cannot wait until their visit next year!
