Cyclist aims to raise $20K for Martha’s Pantry

The Columbian

CLARK COUNTY — Vancouver resident and Rotarian Terry Toland set off July 9 for a 1,300-mile bike ride called the Border to Bay Benefit Ride to raise awareness and money for Martha’s Pantry, a nonprofit organization that helps people with food, clothing and other needs — with a focus on people living with HIV/AIDS.

Toland, past president of the Vancouver Metro Sunset Rotary Club, focused on Martha’s Pantry because the pantry saw a rise in clientele during the pandemic. He hopes to raise $20,000 for the organization by riding his bike from the Peace Arch in Blaine, near the Canada border, to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.

Toland previously rode from Canada to Mexico to raise funds for Share. The Border to Bay Benefit Ride will conclude July 29.
