St. Joseph’s Gene Boysen finished the Habitat 500 on July 21 and raised more than $3,200. The bike ride raises money for Habitat for Humanity and started and ended in Becker.
Before he left, Boysen had set a goal of raising at least $2,000.
In an email, Boysen wrote: ” The route from Pierz back to Becker was 55 miles with the wind at our back. It was a great way to finish. As the finish line appeared, I thought about all the people involved in making this ride possible. Countless volunteers and hours spent in preparation and of course the generous donations so many have made to Habitat for Humanity.
“It was a great experience and the feeling I got after listening to Habitat homeowners was inspirational. Being part of something bigger than yourself produces a high equal to no other. That is the drive and the fuel for many miles on the road.”
