Cassie’s House bicycle ride
A Southwest Wisconsin man is using his long-distance bike ride this summer to raise money for the purchase of a transitional house for rural families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
Michael Famiano, 43, a physicist and veteran long-distance bicycle rider, plans to depart Aug. 8 from his home near Dodgeville, 40 miles west of Madison, to begin an 11-day trip ride around Lake Michigan. His planned circuit takes him across central Wisconsin past Green Bay, Marinette, and Escanaba, Michigan, on the west to St. Ignace, then down through western Michigan and northwest Indiana and back up through north-central Illinois.
He is currently fund-raising for the trip on the Youcaring website at http://www.youcaring.com/project-fundraiser/cycling-for-homelessness/324333. All money raised will go to the purchase of a home in or near Dodgeville to provide temporary residence and faith-based mentoring to help homeless families work toward self-sufficiency.
The object of Famiano’s fund-raiser, the Cassie’s Transitional House project, is spearheaded by Hidden Valley Community Church of Dodgeville. It is named for a member of a young family the church found living in a tent several years ago; Famiano will likewise live out of a lightweight pup tent on his 1200-mile trip.
Famiano’s goal is not simply to raise money, but also to raise awareness about homelessness and poverty in rural areas, which he says gets little attention in national debates about poverty and homelessness. Famiano’s home area is predominantly rural.
Michael Famiano will be arriving in Sheridan on August 16th and will be staying at the Rolling Oaks Campground that evening. He will be coming from Lake Village, IN that day.
