Bucket 100 (Habitat for Humanity)

The Bucket 100 Bicycle Tour is an annual weekend event through Central Indiana. It was established in 2006 to raise money and awareness for the mission of Habitat for Humanity in the state. It was created to be a two day ride on the weekend of the IU v Purdue football game – the “Old Oaken Bucket.” Unfortunately, the planners of the event did not take into consideration the near freezing temperatures and the short daylight hours of that time of year. The cyclists almost froze to their pedals on the first two tours. 

Bucket is now scheduled annually in October. It is one of the biggest fundraisers for the Purdue Campus chapter, and also brings donations to other affiliates throughout the state and country. 

Your donation truly helps the cause. So what is the cause? You may have heard of Habitat, but not know much more. Habitat for Humanity believes that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. They build and repair houses all over the world using volunteer labor and donations. Their partner families purchase these houses through no-profit, no-interest mortgage loans or innovative financing methods. The monthly payments in turn are used to build the next Habitat home.

Clean, decent, and stable housing provides more than just a roof over someone’s head:
>Stability for families and children
>Sense of dignity and pride
>Health, physical safety, and security
>Increase of educational and job prospects
