Battle Against Hunger
Who we are
Battle Against Hunger is a non-denominational charity founded by Chuck Inman in 2003 to increase public awareness of the hunger problem in our area and to raise funds for community organizations that provide nutritional assistance and shelter. Chuck passed away in an automobile accident in 2014. This group continues to honor Chuck's legacy by holding a 200-mile yearly fundraising bike tour that has raises money and awareness of those who find the very basics of providing food a struggle.
Since its inception, BAH has raised over $950,000 for a number of area service organizations. We ride, we walk, we volunteer for BAH events - and we have a lot of fun while supporting a great cause! The donations have helped to provide nutritious meals and other assistance that enables people to gain greater self-sufficiency. We invite you to join us in our commitment and fellowship.
Want to help us reach our goal but can't join us for any of the rides? We have ideas that might be perfect for you or your group of supporters!
