What began as a notably adventurous way to raise awareness of the Lasallian Volunteers' mission to eradicate poverty in America, became an epic event with international recognition. Thousands were moved by the spirit of the young riders. The cross-country ride, which began two months earlier in Portland, OR, officially ended in Long Branch, NJ, on August 13, 2011. LVs Ride left the lasting impression of giving service to those in need, and how important it is that anyone who can donate any of their time to service should do just that. Little ways lead to big ways of one day breaking the cycle of poverty in America. Bringing people together as one builds an association of like-minded movers and shakers who can really make a change.
