 "I participate in Habitat's Ride for Homes because it allows me to contribute to Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod's fundraising needs while enjoying the pleasure of cycling and taking in the beautiful Cape Cod scenery. The event is extremely well organized, and I love the tremendous support given to the riders from the Habitat crew and all the businesses whose donations make the ride day so enjoyable. I choose to support Habitat Cape Cod to be help them reach their goal of providing affordable homes to local Cape Cod families." Patty Linehan, Participant
