It's a family affair
When Redmond Rotary sets off on its 27th annual charity bike ride July 16, Klahanie resident Will Arnold, 11, will be among the participants peddling 300 miles from Redmond to Spokane. Called Redspoke, the event raises money for Hopelink and Little Bit Riding School.
Will rides tandem with his father, Ted. Also along for the ride is grandfather, Tim. The trio participated in the ride last year.
The ride, and support, has become a family affair.
Tim, who is a member of the Redmond Rotary club, has participated in the ride for more than 20 years. This will be Ted's fifth year on the ride, including once when he was in college. Will's aunt and grandmother have previously ridden.
This year, the rest of the family – mother, brother and sister, grandmother, aunt and three cousins – will help provide support for the estimated 100 riders who are expected to participate .
Will is not new to biking. He has been mountain biking for years at Duthie Hills Park where a standard afternoon ride is 5+ miles and includes many hills.
The Starfish Story
A young man is walking along the ocean and
sees a beach on which thousands and thousands
of starfish have washed ashore. Further along
he sees an old man, walking slowly and
stooping often, picking up one starfish after
another and tossing each one gently into the
“Why are you throwing starfish into the
ocean?,” he asks.
“Because the sun is up and the tide is going out
and if I don’t throw them further in they will
“But, old man, don’t you realize there are miles
and miles of beach and starfish all along it!
You can’t possibly save them all, you can’t even
save one-tenth of them. In fact, even if you
work all day, your efforts won’t make any
difference at all.”
The old man listened calmly and then bent
down to pick up another starfish and threw it
into the sea. “It made a difference to that one.”
