MESA Bike Tour Comes to North Baltimore

MESA stands for ” Medical Equipment and Supplies Abroad “.The MESA Bike Tour helps raise funds and awareness for the procurement and distribution of donated medical equipment and supplies. Then, these items can be shipped all over the world to communities in dire need.

These items can includecanes, walkers, hospital beds, X-Ray machines, baby incubators, linens, and much more. All of this operated by volunteers that help collect, store, load and distribute these items to foreign destinations from the distribution center in Fostoria, Ohio.

However, the hard part is yet to come. The mountain of documents and paperwork for shipping and receiving in many foreign countries is a “Red Tape” nightmare. That does not detour or stop the hard working volunteers from their primary goal of helping others.

Below are a  few pictures from last Saturday’s (06/11/16) MESA Bike Tour. Rotarians in attendance were Jim Miller, Leisa Zeigler, Dennis
Miller, John and Andrew Kelley (volunteer). They pitched in to pitch a tent, set up chairs and tables, welcomed and handed out drinks to thirsty bike riders and visited with cyclists from all over Ohio. It was a lot of fun and not much work.

The MESA Bike Riders started arriving at the North Baltimore Slippery Elm Trail Head just off of East Broadway at 10:39 AM after starting the tour in Bowling Green Ohio at 9:00 AM. The “Rough Riders” dismounted and took a rest with snacks, drinks and conversation before heading to their next stop in Fostoria for lunch and an Open House at the New MESA Storage and Distribution Center. The Center is managed by past North Baltimore Rotarian, Gary Davis.
