Local residents Kathy and Steve Boerigter recounted their 5,051-mile tandem bike ride across America where they discovered generosity and grace along the way, during a community talk on Jan. 23 at Fuller Lodge.
At the conclusion of their talk, the Boerigter’s presented a $5,051 check to the Los Alamos Community Foundation (LACF) and United Way of Northern New Mexico (UWNNM). Their check represents $1 for each mile they traveled from Olympic Peninsula to Key West. The Boerigters had challenged the community to raise a matching amount and the community responded in kind.
“LACF and UWNNM would like to thank Steve and Kathy for their support and for their fun and informative presentation.”
