Friends and relatives may pledge an amount per lap or a flat amount. The average number of laps that each child will ride is 2 laps per age of the child. The older children often ride more than the average, though. All funds raised will be used for classroom and curriculum needs at Suncreek Kids. Thank you for supporting Suncreek Kids!!

As women, we often are overwhelmed by the demands and circumstances of life, resulting in stress, fear, worry, impatience, fatigue, frustration, and even depression. The truth is that we were created to be overwhelmed . . . not by life but by God! When we learn to be overwhelmed by God, the fruit in our lives goes from rotten to fragrant—filling our days with peace, hope, love, and joy.
