Hello Bike Friends! We posted this a few weeks ago, but wanted to send out a reminder for those of you that may have missed it, especially with the weather being so beautiful.

The National Bike Challenge is going on NOW! It actually started on May 1 and it is out there to encourage everyone to get out and ride! It's a fun way to have friendly competition with yourself, friends, others in your area and even nationally. You need a Strava account to take part, join "Team DiscoverHCT" if you want to join several other riders here in Howard County (many club members are already part of that team), then go to nationalbikechallenge.org to link them up.

Right now, our little team is ranked #51 NATIONALLY, and it's kind of fun to watch us compete with some pretty big teams in much bigger areas!

So think about joining and encourage your friends to join, because while it's fun to compete, the most important this is that it encourages people to get out and ride! Get some exercise and be healthy

Due to some issues with editing/updating on the website (breakaway.club), Daun is having to make some emergency changes to the entire site tonight that will likely have most pages unavailable or in questionable states throughout the rest of the evening.

YMCA Healthy Kids Day

April 29, 2017, 10:00am - April 29, 2017, 11:00am

School's out and it's time to relax, decompress and have fun with friends. Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies. On April 29, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. Join the Movement in hosting one of the nation's largest health days for children!

Today's sermon was on compassion and how a healthy disciple of Christ demonstrates compassion. How do you demonstrate compassion to others around you? Do you see their problems and have compassion for them? Do you wish there was something you could do to help? Well here's your chance. Within our community of Kokomo there are people without homes, people rebuilding after a devastating tornado. It was a month ago, but the after effects are still very present. This event is your chance to help an organization that helps our community! Give yourself a night out, a great workout, possibly win a really nice prize and show some compassion to the tornado victims by donating to this great cause! Hope to see you on the dance floor! ...
