Pedaling for a Great Cause

Posted: Updated:

During KEYC New 12's Wednesday's Midday show, Deb Newman with Partners Affordable Housing stopped by to talk about a unique community fundraiser. 

On Saturday February 27, the YMCA will host the third annual Pedal Past Poverty. The event raises funds and awareness for homelessness in the Mankato Area. 

From 9 to 2 p.m.roughly 60 teams of ten riders will pedal to the limit on stationary bikes. 

And it's not too late to get involved. The event is still looking for teams. 

According, to Partners for Affordable Housing  more than 1,015 local individuals sought out shelter; 47% of those were children under the age of 18.
