Grace College and Seminary will be hosting riders on the UD-ND Ride for Life bicycle tour, sponsored by The Life Resource Centre and Dayton Right to Life.
This four-day, 237-mile journey through the rolling countryside of Ohio and Indiana will commence Wednesday, July 31, and conclude Saturday, Aug. 3, traveling along bike paths and rural state highways.
The ride departs from the University of Dayton and concludes at the Sacred Heart Parish Center on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. Grace will be hosting the stopover on Friday, Aug. 2, and will house around 30 cyclists in the Gordon Recreation Center. The evening will include dinner and a program featuring Grace College President Bill Katip speaking on his personal connection to the bicycle tour. Proceeds from the tour benefit the emergency baby pantry and three levels of parenting classes for The Life Resource Centre.
The Life Resource Centre and Dayton Right to Life strive to protect the rights of the unborn, the elderly, the mentally handicapped, the disabled and the terminally ill through legislative efforts, education, outreach programs and research.
The mission is to promote life through education (increased awareness) and action.
