Welcome to the 30 young bicyclists of “Ride 2 Freedom” who have embarked on a 3000 mile journey, taking to the roads with the mission of promoting awareness of spiritual and religious persecution in China, riding across this great nation of ours, a nation founded on the basic rights of freedom of religious and spiritual beliefs, and stopping in our area to share their vision with the citizens of Kansas and Missouri.

I want to personally commend all of you for your sincere and dedicated effort in bringing awareness of the dangerous plight of millions of children in China due to the persecution of the peaceful mind and body practice of Falun Gong in China. These children have no real voice of their own, but through this sacrifice of yours, may have a chance yet to be heard.

Wishing you every success!
