Guam - Guam's Joseph Husslein, CEO of TakeCare, will be embarking on a 41-day bike ride across America, spanning the Pacific to the Atlantic Coast at a distance of over 3,200 miles. Husslein is a longtime advocate and former Big Brother who hopes to promote cycling and living a healthy lifestyle as well as support his favorite non-profit organization.

The "Little Big Ride" campaign being spearheaded by Big Brothers/Big Sisters will dedicate 100% of every dollar that is raised for every mile to the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America Foundation.

Vanessa Estella is the executive director for Big Brothers/Big Sisters Guam, and says this is an opportunity to raise awareness about their mentoring program.  "It's called Little Big Ride for a reason: everybody can pitch in just a little bit and can make a donation of any amount and the impact will be huge because it will go towards sustaining our programs throughout the villages and Guam's local schools," she explained.

Tomorrow is the Little Big Ride launch event taking place at the FHP Health Center campus in Tamuning from 3-6pmm, where all are invited to come out and learn more about the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Guam chapter. There will be snacks like hot dogs and snow cones and 5 bikes will be given away to 5 lucky individuals in the Big Brother/Big Sister mentorship program.
