Rich and Becky Dixon want to share a journey of hope.In 1987, Rich fell while installing Christmas lights. Confined to a wheelchair by a spinal cord injury and paralysis below his chest, Rich struggled to find meaning and purpose in a broken body and what seemed to be a broken life.
Rich and Becky know first-hand that adversity’s part of life. They also know God’s faithfulness in keeping His promise to work for good in all circumstances.
RICH’S RIDE is their attempt to share the blessings they’ve experienced in difficult circumstances.
In September, 2011, Rich cranked his hand-cycle 1500 miles along the entire length of the Mississippi River. They spoke to more than 4,000 people in 26 different venues and raised nearly $60,000 for Convoy of Hope.
Rich thought it was a one-time project, but God had a bigger plan. The journey of hope continues.
RICH’S RIDE takes Rich and Becky on a variety of long-distance hand-cycle rides. Their mission:
- Demonstrate that it's possible to overcome adversity and accomplish big dreams.
- Speak to a variety of audiences with a message of hope, possibility, and God's faithfulness.
- Raise funds and awareness for various charitable causes.
