The Third Annual Ride for Resilience
The New Hampshire Children’s Trust’s 3rd Annual 100-mile Ride for Resilience took place on October 13, 2023 throughout the Lakes Region. In partnership with New Hampshire’s Network of Family Resources Centers, the focus of the ride was to highlight family strength in the Granite State, and to build awareness of the many ways the NH Network of Family Support helps foster individual, family, and community resilience.
Founded by NH Children’s Trust Board Vice Chair Mark Knights, the Ride for Resilience connects Family Resource Centers across the state, with participants cycling from one FRC to another to spotlight their important role in the community. Riders also participated in a fundraising challenge, raising money to support the essential work of Family Resource Centers throughout New Hampshire.
Knights, along with Children’s Trust Senior Advancement Director Nathan Fink and four other riders, cycled a total of 103 miles from Whole Village in Plymouth, to Lakes Region Community Services in Laconia, to Archways in Tilton and Franklin and then back to Plymouth to raise awareness about the statewide resources available to all NH families. The supporting team of seven total riders has a goal of raising $30,000, and will continue to actively fundraise through November 17th.
Everyone plays a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. To learn more about the Ride for Resilience go to: https://www.nhchildrenstrust.org/2023-ride-for-resilience
