Beginning April 1, Shop ‘n Save owner Ray Charley will bike 3,058 miles across the United States to raise money for Faherty’s Troops First Foundation, a nonprofit benefiting injured and disabled veterans.
According to the store’s Facebook page, “In one of my favorite movie scenes, a young fish confronted with what appeared to be insurmountable challenges was offered this advice: ‘Keep swimming, just keep swimming.’ These simple yet impactful words from the cherished children’s movie, Finding Nemo, are probably familiar to many. While not verbatim, this was the essence of advice that my parents and family instilled in me. Don’t give up. Perseverance is at the heart of my next challenge in life that I’ve set out to accomplish. I am now planning on riding my bicycle from San Diego, California, to St. Augustine, Florida, together with 14 others. Beginning April 1, for 48 days, I will set out to cover the 3,058 miles. That’s a lot of days and a whole lot of miles. Keep pedaling… just keep pedaling,” said Charley.
