Dear Editor:
   Kishwaukee Kiwanis of DeKalb would like to thank our community for making the 14th annual, 2012 Biking with Beanzie Event a huge success. We had a record event with over 650 riders participating.  Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. Profits from this event go to support the Kishwaukee Bike Pathway projects as well as other projects within DeKalb County. Biking with Beanzie is a recreational ride presented by the Kishwaukee Kiwanis Club of DeKalb and sponsored by Kishwaukee Community Hospital. Riders chose from a range of distances between 24 to 102 miles. This year by partnering with the Pioneering Healthier Communities initiative to help promote a healthier lifestyle within DeKalb County we were able to add Community Ride routes of 3 and 5 miles.
     Special thanks to our supporters: Kishwaukee Community Hospital, Brad Manning Ford , Competitive Edge , DeKalb Fiber Optic, DeKalb/Sycamore Chevrolet GMC Cadillac, Hy-Vee, Ken Spears Construction, NorthernRehab Physical Therapy Specialists, Resource Bank, Schnucks, Unlimited Performance, Water Works, and 3M.

New this year, thanks to the food vendors: Al’s BBQ Shack, Aspen Leaf Yogurt, and the DHS Barb Boosters.  Thank you also to all the communities and people who provided us with rest stop space. Without the support of everyone mentioned and the many more who helped this event would not be possible.
