BALTIMORE - 365 miles in just 5 days. It's a task most would find daunting, but 13 women from Baltimore are up for the challenge.
The cyclists are part of the Women Who STAND/Baltimore advocacy group and are riding for World Relief's Ride/365 initiative, according to their representative. The women are biking to raise funds for programs that help women and children affected by human trafficking and HIV/AIDS in Cambodia, Asia and Malawi, Africa.
The ride will start today in the western part of the state. The women will travel through northern Maryland, along the Eastern Shore, through Annapolis and end at Fort McHenry. A welcome home celebration is scheduled for September 22 at 3 p.m.
