Steve & Kathy Boerigter Donate $5,051 Raised By Tandem Bike Ride Across America To LACF And UWNNM

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 and United Way of Northern New Mexico. Their check represents $1 for each mile they traveled from the Olympic Peninsula to Key West. The Boerigters had challenged the community to raise a matching amount and the community responded in kind. The LACF and UWNNM thanked the Boerigters for their support and their fun, informative presentation.
