CHESTER – Some local cyclists are headed around the state to raise money for 4-H through the “Outspoken for 4-H” bike ride.
Riders raise funds for the cause through individuals and organizations that sponsor them during the trek. The money raised is used to award 4-H camp scholarships to young people across the state. This year’s bike ride, starting in the Northern Panhandle, boasts the largest number of riders and largest one-year increase of riders since the first ride 10 years ago. On Thursday, riders will begin their journey at the World’s Largest Teapot in Chester, and travel through 11 counties before arriving at their destination: Jackson’s Mill State 4-H Camp in Weston.
Jefferson County school board member Scott Sudduth and three other local riders are taking part.
