W.Va. cyclists raise funds to support 4-H campers

Apr. 29, 2013 @ 08:11 AM

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Twenty-five cyclists are in training for a 250-mile bike ride across the state that will raise money to send low-income West Virginia children to 4-H camps this summer.

The “Outspoken for 4-H” team hopes to raise $20,000 by June 13.

Organizer James Grantham says no child should miss out because his or her family can’t afford the fee.
To donate, you can go online to the WVU Extension website or text the words “WVU Bike” to the number 85944 to give $10 to the 4-H Annual Fund.

For more than a century, 4-H has focused on agricultural science, electricity, mechanics, entrepreneurship and natural sciences. Today, 4-H also includes subjects like rocketry, robotics, bio-fuels, renewable energy and computer science.
