Local Residents to Participate in Battle Against Hunger Bike Ride to Benefit JFS Food Pantry

Posted on August 15, 2014

Local community members Doug Stanger, Rachel Ludwig and Terry Fischer will participate in the 12th Annual Battle Against Hunger Bike Ride to raise awareness and funding for the Jewish Family Service Food Pantry. Held from September 5-7, 2014, Battle Against Hunger was created to help create public awareness about those who struggle with hunger, and provide funds to community organizations that assist those in need.

“We are very excited to participate in the Battle Against Hunger Bike Ride again this year to benefit the JFS Food Pantry,” said Stanger. “What makes this race so special is it is one of the only races that allows riders to choose what organization they ride for, ultimately making for a more passionate and enjoyable race.”

The Battle Against Hunger Bike Ride is a 200 mile ride which begins in Gettysburg, VA and ends in Washington Crossing, PA. Stanger, who will be joined by Ludwig and Fischer, plans on completing the 100 mile route for the third time. The three, who have previously completed bike rides benefiting the American Cancer Society and National MS Society, pledge to raise $3,000 for the JFS Food Pantry which offershearty meal options to individuals and families in need.
