Cyclists Ride for Animals

Ride to the Light Campaign is raising funds for animal sanctuaries.

For a second year, cyclists in Oregon are participating in a 100-mile bike ride to benefit Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, Out to Pasture Sanctuary, and Project Hope Sanctuary. Three Century Sanctuary, which will begin on September 25, will see the cyclists leave the Portland In Defense of Animals offices, head to Out to Pasture in Estacada, and then continue on to Lighthouse in Scio. The group is welcoming anyone to participate in the ride or to contribute to its cause on its donation page. “Having been to a handful of sanctuaries and having the pleasure of knowing some people who run them, work at them, and volunteer at them, I’m of the opinion that sanctuaries are the best outreach tool we have,” organizer Josh Hooten said.
