South Asia Field Partnership & Compassion 575  

Become a Shadow Rider!

During the past few years, David Argabright and the South Asia Partnership have raised thousands of dollars for child development centers in South Asia. Starting with a 575 mile ride in 2009 and 820 miles in 2010, David & Sharon Argabright rode all the way from San Diego, CA, to St. Augustine, FL, in 2011: 3,100 miles of compassion. In 2012 they rode 2,012 miles from Nashville, TN, to Key West, FL, and 2013 they completed 1,080 miles, starting again in Nashville, TN, and riding to Austin, TX. For 2014 they are planning to ride 1,320 miles from Mexico to Music City.

Why not join them? Rev. Rod Ruger, a retired Nazarene minister in Arizona, formed the "shadow riders" in 2012—a group of friends who join David in his monumental effort, but on their own time frames and resources. Shadow Riders duplicate the number of miles ridden by David Argabright in any given calendar year by riding shorter rides and totaling their cumulative miles for that year to equal David's. Shadow Riders also seek individuals, companies or churches that pledge to give a certain amount per mile or a one-time gift to contribute towards the ministry of Compassion 575.

A number of shadow riders have already cycled thousands of miles in Arizona, Washington, Oregon, and in Germany. Read what they're planning for 2014.

You can be a shadow rider too! No matter if you manage the miles on your own or join with friends to do their share: Find sponsors, get on your bike, and watch how children's lives are transformed!

For more information about the shadow riders please contact Rod Ruger (kenrose64@gmail.com).
