The Bike & Hike 2023 Wrap Up.
Despite the weekend’s off-and-on-again rain, and regretfully having to cancel the motorcycle and bike rides, you continue to support the mission of COBYS through the Bike & Hike event and the decisions we had to make for this year’s event. We were fortunate that the hardest rain came after the walkers returned to our Incredible Ice Cream Celebration at the Lititz Church of the Brethren.
Thanks to our top fundraisers:
Floy Fitzkee, Don Fitzkee and Londa Brandt were our top three fundraisers. And special thanks to James Wenger for his enthusiastic fundraising.
An extra-special thanks to Mari and Mark Cunningham for their substantial fundraising efforts.
