Senior Sam Maxey plans to mark his graduation from Valpo by participating in a five-week bike ride up the east coast to raise money and awareness for women in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) who have been subjected to rape and war crimes. Funds will go to an organization called She’s My Sister, which helps women in the DRC through spiritual and physical means. All this is done on a grassroots level through local churches in the DRC.
If you want to find out more about the fundraiser please visit www.mysistertour.org. To donate to this noble cause all you would have to do once on the website is click on “sponsor a participant” and select Sam’s name. If you have any questions, please email Sam.Maxey@valpo.edu.
Sam will be talking about his bike ride plans on May 4 at Morning Prayer, which begins at 11:15 a.m.
