Joe Timmins planned to ride his motorcycle 1,000 miles in 24 hours to qualify for a cycle organization.
But his wife, Sandi, added to his trip. She’s a board member of Godparents for Tanzania, which provides vocational training for Tanzanian students and a home for Maasai girls.
It was founded by Dwayne J. Westermann, an ELCA retired pastor from Roanoke, Va.
Timmins rode across four states, through a traffic jam, thunderstorm, rain, fog and forest fire smoke, raising more than $4,000—scholarships for eight to 10 students for a year.
