Courtney Bibb is a man on a mission — on 20 missions, to be exact.

On Oct. 1, Bibb set out from his home in the New York City borough of the Bronx, with the goal of bicycling across the United States, stopping and volunteering at 20 nonprofits along the way.

“I felt like I was being pushed toward a purpose,” he said. “I started training, doing 40 miles on a stationary bike in the morning, going over the details of the trip in the afternoon, and going back to the gym at night.”

As soon as he was comfortably able to go 80 miles on the bike, he knew it was time to start his journey. His departure came with little fanfare — he told only a few close friends and family members about his plan. He didn’t go to any companies for sponsorship or promotion. He paid for the bicycle he bought just three weeks before he left.

Support for charities:

Bibb has been keeping track of his adventures and keeping in contact with his family and friends through his Facebook, Instagram, Google+ and Tumblr page. He’s hesitant to take praise for his actions, but the site has drawn the attention of friends he’s met along the way, many of whom want to help his cause.

He started a Go Fund Me account:

C.harity A.ction B.enefits, to raise money for the places he visits. Bibb hopes to reach $20,000, or $1,000 for each charity, by the time he arrives at his final destination, Los Angeles, in March or April.

More than money, Bibb wants to raise awareness for the nonprofits he’s serving. He wants to take stories of the places he’s been and the people he’s met back home to New York, to inspire the next generation to find ways to help.

“I’m not trying to garner any type of fame, because after I pass on, these charities will still be around. They will live on and keep doing what they’re supposed to be doing. That’s what I want people to know about.”...

From the coast of California to vintage New York... It took me 6 months to get to L.A. on a bicycle... I flew back on a plane in 6 hours... I'm putting together all my thoughts into words to make a video... I just came to the conclusion that 3 separate videos have to be made... 1) to sum up my feelings, thank God and the people closest to me that contributed to this successful journey to make it possible... 2) The amazing charities and great people I consider to be friends that I met along the way... And 3) The bike shops that supported me on my journey because without regular checkups and maintenance my bicycle probably would have fell apart like a old bugs bunny cartoon

Through hard work, preparation, dedication & an extreme amount of motivation I persevered... The temperature was as cold as 20 degrees, the roads were slick and icey and wind gusts were as high as 30 mph... My passion never wavered, My love grew stronger and My faith in God became proof... I thank God for keeping me physically healthy and spiritually wealthy... I acheived the impossible to many but was blessed plenty... I rode my bicycle across America, gave unconditionally and expected nothing in return... Thanks for everything... Stay tuned for the video of many thank you's... Many Miles, Many Blessings...

What a great way way to end an amazing journey across the country... I truly appreciated all the opportunities I had to work with so many wonderful charities and to end it with the Marine Mammal Care Center was an honor... Thanks to their great staff I was able to witness a special event... The release of those 6 Sea Lions was a privilege and I respect and love the work they are doing for the community of Los Angeles, CA out of San Pedro... Many Miles, Many Blessings and Many Thanks... marinemammalcare.org...

Education
The Marine Mammal Care Center at Fort MacArthur, through the Center for Marine Studies, helps to educate students, schoolteachers, other professionals and the public about the marine sciences and the animals we care for. The Care Center also collaborates and networks with other agencies, museums and universities toward ongoing research in the marine field to help in the treatment of their patients.

Group tours are arranged through the Marine Mammal Care Center’s marketing and development director, or through the educational coordinator at the Center for Marine Studies. Due to safety considerations, a “tour” is limited to classroom activities and viewing the animals from outside the perimeter fence, and does not entail a behind-the-scenes (i.e. inside the fence) look at the Care Center... marinemammalcare.org...
