Jose Bermudez TransAm Race for B/CS Habitat
June 3, 2017 - June 22, 2017
On June 3, 2017 José Luis Bermúdez, Professor of Philosophy at Texas A& M University, will mount his bike and race for B/CS Habitat for Humanity for the third time. He will begin the TransAmerica Bike Race in Astoria, OR, and race 4,228 miles to Yorktown, VA. His goal is a competitive finish in under 20 days–a task that will challenge him both physically and mentally, requiring between 16 and 20 hours a day on the bike. The Trans Am is a self-supported race on open roads; José will carry his own food, water and equipment, and will bivouac by the side of the road.
On the Race Across America in 2013 and 2015, José and his supporters raised the funds to co-sponsor two Habitat homes. This time he is hoping to raise $27,500 in order to co-sponsor a third home for a family in the Bryan-College Station area. José will be covering all the expenses associated with the race, so all funds raised will go directly to B/CS Habitat toward the co-sponsorship.
We invite you to be a part of Jose’s epic race by helping him reach his fundraising goal! Go to https://habitatbcs.networkforgood.com/projects/30417-jose-bermudez-transam-race to contribute.
