Anonymous donor challenges MoBikeFed supporters

I support bicycle advocacy in Missouri because cycling as transportation represents a solution to the many of the health issues that confront Missouri residents, the transportation issues that affect our cities, and the environmental issues that threaten our planet.

An anonymous foundation has challenged supporters of walking and bicycling in Missouri to match its $15,000 contribution in support of better, safer walking and bicycling in Missouri by January 31st.

All contributions between now and January 31st, 2007, will be matched dollar for dollar by the foundation. This effectively doubles the amount of any membership contribution or other donation you make to the Missouri Bicycle Federation or the Missouri Bicycle Foundation during this period.

Our goal is to raise $15,000 from members, friends, and supporters of better bicycling and walking by January 31st, to be able to full advantage of this generous offer of support.

This Sustaining Member/Sustaining Donor campaign is designed to put MBF on stable financial footing to be able to continue and expand our programs and activities in support of better, safer bicycling and walking and to represent your interests before the legislature, MoDOT, and other state government and regional agencies.

For me supporting MBF is a natural. Every I ride, whether it's on the city streets of West Plains or one of the State "lettered" routes I think of who is looking out for my safety. No other organization acts on behalf of bicyclists in the state like MBF. Whether it's advocacy in the form of legislation or awareness campaigns, no other organization represents my concerns to the groups that need to hear them!

I support the MBF because I know that MBF is doing for bicycling in Missouri what I can not do personally. We may read all of the bicycling literature, tinker on our bicycles all night long, and ride to our heart's content...but none of that makes Missouri a better place to ride a bicycle.

As an avid runner, active in the Kansas City running community, I believe it is crucial to lend support to the Missouri Bicycle Federation. The issues this group tackles benefit bicyclists, runners, and walkers alike. Since I have learned more about the work this group does, I have also learned that there are very few people and organizations looking out for those that enjoy non-motorized transportation. In my opinion, it is imperative that the Missouri Bicycle Federation continue to represent us, and I am excited about the positive changes we will enjoy for years to come that will be a direct result of this group's leadership.
