In 2016, friends of the ministry Michael and Stephanie Lewis developed the Agony Ride website you see today, which changed the fundraising landscape by creating an online presence and allowing donors to interact and engage with riders during the ride itself.
In 2018, we surpassed the $200K fundraising milestone for the first time. Then in 2020, despite the Agony Ride going entirely virtual due to the pandemic, we broke $250K in fundraising. This year, this record was shattered by over $100K, with gifts and pledges totaling $354K+ at time of publication. A new individual fundraising record was also set at $21,563 by long-time rider Jonathan Palmer.
We are in awe of God’s provision for the ministry and filled with gratitude for each rider, sagger, and sponsor that make the Agony Ride what it is today, 40 years in the running. All glory be to God!
