While out on a bike ride, Barrington community member Bob Lee came up with an idea called the Ride for 3 Reasons after being inspired by Mitch Albom’s Tuesdays with Morrie. During 12,000 mile journey across the country, Bob had the opportunity to educate people about the three causes he was riding for. His presentation at a local elementary school in 2007 had a lasting impact on Jan Gierlach who was a third grader at the time. Nine years later, Jan is ready to make a cross country trip of his own thanks to Bob’s inspirational speech. Read more of their story here.
