OUR INSPIRATION

The concept of the “RideStrong” event was inspired from a bike ride that Paul Anderson completed in hopes of raising awareness about starting a youth home.

 

 In 1961, Paul Anderson cycled from Vidalia, GA to Boys Town in Omaha, Nebraska. His wife, Glenda, accompanied him in a van bearing “The World’s Strongest Man” banner.

 

 

It was during that ride that Anderson met S. Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil- A, who then made a major contribution toward the start of the youth home.
