Alive and biking from Waco to Anchorage
Just about every college student does something others might call “crazy” at least once while in school, but few take it to as grand a scale as this: four Baylor juniors are going to bicycle from Waco to Anchorage, Alaska, this summer to raise awareness for suicide prevention.
After talking to a friend who had attempted suicide, the quartet started a group on Facebook.com to raise awareness of the issue, promising that if the group reached 250,000 members, they would make the trek. As of today, the group has already surpassed 150,000 members, and plans for fundraising and even possible incorporation as a non-profit group have begun. I’d say these students have a good handle on the “understanding life as a stewardship” part of Baylor 2012.
Sic ’em, students!
