• Support our construction manager as he prepares to ride 200 miles in the Dirty Kanza gravel road race on May 31st

    Our construction manager Jonathan is taking on the Dirty Kanza again. What is the Dirty Kanza, you ask? The ride’s website explains it best: “Dirty Kanza 200 is a solo, self-supported, non-stop, 200-mile-long bicycling endurance challenge on the gravel and dirt roads of the Flint Hills region in east-central Kansas.”

    He did this same race last year. You can read about his experience here.

    So, 200 miles sounds insane to me, and doing it two years in a row sounds even crazier. Once again he wants to raise money for Habitat while he pedals through each mile. He’s taking pledges per mile and all the money raised will go to Lawrence Habitat’s next home. Jonathan is hoping to raise $3,000, and while he claims he is “woefully under-training,” we here in the office are VERY confident that he’ll tackle those 200 miles! In fact, three of our office staff have made pledges for Jonathan’s ride – including Jonathan himself.

    If you’d like to support Jonathan’s Dirty Kanza ride, please email me at maddie@lawrencehabitat.org and let me know what you’d like to pledge per mile! The race is May 31st and we’ll contact you afterwards with your total donation. Remember: all donations are tax deductible!kanza hand out 2014
