Sabra Peterson stops and talks to WBIW about the Cover Indiana Bicycle Tour to raise money for Habitat for Humanity.
Sabra Peterson from Allentown, PA stopped and talked with WBIW on her journey to explain how she got involved in the fundraiser.
“About four years ago, my father (Bill McGee from West Lafayette) who was 79 at the time, got me involved,” she added. “In fact, I probably walked most of the places he biked my first year. My goal this year is to raise around $1,400. We plan to stop and look at some of the homes that were built by Habitat for Humanity in Bloomington, today. Look at the water tower, here in Bedford that says ‘Building a Better Community’ that is what the HFH is all about.”
The bicycle tour was started in 2004 by the Habitat for Humanity of Indiana to help raise money, awareness and establish community among the Habitat for Humanity affiliates.
