Saturday, August 8, 2015. Riders chose a 50 or 84 mile ride from Glen Ellyn or South Elgin to The Abbey Resort in Fontana, WI. Bike to Lake Geneva raised money to help fund the construction of a S.T.E.M. Center (Science and Technology) at Kamwenge Secondary and Vocational School (KSVS) in Uganda. After the successful ride, riders and their families joined us for a celebration meal with entertainment at The Abbey Resort in Fontana, WI.
Thank you to everyone who joined us to ride, volunteer, and contribute or sponsor riders for Bike to the Lake 2015. Riders had a great day for riding…temperature hovered around 72 degrees. The Celebration following at The Abbey Resort in Fontana, WI on the shores of Lake Geneva included food, drink, and music for riders, their guests, and volunteers.
This year, 75 riders and sponsors contributed $35,000 toward completion of a STEM Science and Math Center for Kamwenge Secondary and Vocational School. In full we raised $125,000 to complete building the first phase of the STEM Center, the first floor including a library. We have begun construction of the foundation.
