Family Bike Ride for Haiti Medical Mission

Event Date

Coplay, PA

About This Activity


This will be a 10-mile bike ride (not a race) along the scenic Ironton Rail Trail in Coplay, PA. It will be a fun event for people of all ages. After the ride, there will be a raffle with some great prizes and refreshments. The event will be held rain or shine.

Proceeds from the event will be used in support of a November 2014 medical mission to Haiti by the St. Joseph the Worker mission team. This will be the 5th annual mission to Haiti for the St. Joseph the Worker team. The team will provide medical care to as many as 1000 Haitians in one of the poorest areas of Port-au-Prince. Your participation will provide desperately needed help in support of the poor of Haiti.

The registration fee is tax-deductible subject to IRS guidelines.

If you are not planning to participate in the bike ride but would like to make a tax-deductible donation in support of the mission, please click the link below.
