Cyclists riding the East Coast to raise awareness of poverty housing will stop in Walterboro


For The Press and Standard

Americus, GA - This June a group of cyclists, known as the Fuller Center Bike Adventure (FCBA) team, will pedal 1500 miles from Tybee Island, Georgia to Portland, Maine to raise support for The Fuller Center for Housing. Approximately 35 riders will be joining the ride at various points. The ride will take place from Saturday, May 27 to Sunday, June 25, 2023.

Each rider is responsible for raising roughly $2 per mile. All funds will directly support Fuller Center projects across the U.S. and around the world.

More than cyclists, FCBA participants are ambassadors for The Fuller Center for Housing, helping to raise awareness on the need for affordable housing for low-income families. While traveling, the team will participant in five Fuller Center builds and speak to the media, church groups and civic organizations.

The bikers will stop in Walterboro to help with two housing projects and work needed on the Fuller Center ReStore. They will arrive on Monday, May 29 and a welcome reception will be held at the ReStore at approximately 1:00pm. For updated information follow our Facebook page The Fuller Center for House “Colleton ReUse Store.” Afterwards a police escort will lead them to Grace Advent Church where they will stay. Work will be done on Tuesday and they will cycle out of town on May 31.

If you are interested in helping with snacks or donating towards meals, contact Vicki Carl at 843-635-1900.

Cyclists of all levels are invited to join the team to ride for a day, one of the trip segments or the whole way.

The FCBA is modeled after the cross-country fundraising walks that Millard and Linda Fuller, founders of the Fuller Center and Habitat for Humanity, spearheaded during the 1970s.

Cyclists interested in participating should visit to learn more and register. Those wishing to help the cyclists reach their financial goal can donate online or by calling 229.924.2900 during the week.
