Lesson from Chefs Cycle: Capable of More than We Think We Are

One of the most important things I’ve learned over 30 years at Share Our Strength came during last year’s 3 day, 300 mile Chefs Cycle bike ride from Santa Barbara to San Diego: we are all capable of more than we think we are. That’s how and why we completed the arduous ride, and that’s how and why we will achieve No Kid Hungry.
            Eventually age and common sense will prevail on me to not attempt riding 300 miles with much younger and fitter cyclists. But for now I still have a few rides left in me and along with nearly 150 other riders will spend the next ten weeks training to ensure we keep our commitment.
I hope you will support this year’s ride from Carmel to Santa Barbara. We will raise more than $1 million for our No Kid Hungry campaign, enough to add hundreds of thousands of America’s most vulnerable children to school breakfast and summer meals programs.
