OBS Meeting: Meet Luke Neafus

Posted by on Sep 28, 2012 in General News and Events | 0 comments

Our regular OBS meeting will be this Tuesday, October 2nd at 7:00 PM at Grace United Methodist Church, 6313 N. Tulsa (63rd & Tulsa).  Our featured speakers will be Luke Neafus and his family.  Last year, at the age of 13, Luke raised $10,000 for LiveStrong cancer research.  This year, he is aiming to raise $20,000 through the organization of a new and unique annual ride called Luke’s 5-Line ride (http://lukes5line.com/) held in the Oklahoma Panhandle.  This ride will take off from Black Mesa State Park and has routes from 20 miles to 120 miles.  The 120 miles will touch 5 states (OK, CO, TX, NM, KS)  in one day which is certainly a unique experience in a landscape that few cyclists get to see.

The talk will focus on Luke’s remarkable story as well as the ups and downs of organizing a new ride event.  Please come join us for this great and inspiring story.
