Summary Calendar

D4H Cycling Sponsorships & Fundraising Dinner

D4H Cycling team is a group of men who bicycle great distances and raise money and awareness that helps support Desire 4 Hope! 100% of the team’s Corporate Sponsorships support the Desire 4 Hope ministry for the poor, addicted and hurting. The Domestique* and D4H Cycling kick-off BBQ Fundraiser proceeds cover the Maine trip expenses, with all excess funds supporting the Desire 4 Hope ministry.

*Domestique: in road bicycle races, a domestique is a rider who works for the benefit of their team and leader, rather than trying to win the race themselves. In French, domestique translates as “servant.” By becoming a Domestique sponsor, you serve those cycling by covering the expenses of the trip to Maine, so that all other corporate sponsorships, and all excess domestique funds collected will support the Desire 4 Hope ministry for the poor, addicted and hurting.
