50 years ago, Hal rode 100 miles in 1 day for charity… he thinks he raised a couple hundred dollars!
In 2022 (at the age of 68), one of his bucket list items was to ride the entire 141.3 miles of the D&L Trail from south of Wilkes Barre to Bristol in 3 days. His goal was not only to complete the ride but to use it to raise a total of $50,000 for three charities: Bright Hope, Samaritan’s Purse, & Folds of Honor.
Hal and his friends, Al and Greg, rode on October 19, 20, and 21. The total amount donated was $19,048. He had another ride in the works - February 2023. Stay tuned!
Hal & his wife, Joyce, are owners of American Fence & Flag in Whitehall, PA. We love to give to our community and to national and international organizations whose missions we value. We have a passion for giving which has grown over the past 30 years of our business. Through the company, we give 1% of our sales and 10% of our profit to a variety of charities. Hal thought his bucket list goal to ride the D&L Trail from one end to the other, would be a great way to encourage folks to give and to support three wonderful organizations. Hal is hoping to challenge those who read this to give of their time, talents, and treasure and to make a bucket list and work on doing the things on it - don’t wait until it's too late!
