Fiske rides to raise funds for Habitat

Mike Fiske of Northwoods Habitat For Humanity participated in the Minnesota Habitat 500's 18th annual bike ride July 11-17.

He rode with 136 other riders and many people who were in the support group. During the ride they took a day to help build Minnesota's 1,800 habitat home when they arrived in Hibbing, Minn.

Fiske raised pledges of more than $3,000 and had support from Bemidji's TruStar Federal Credit Union and The Home Place Bike & Ski Shop.

Fiske will begin his second year as an AmeriCorps VISTA this month to help Northwoods Habitat for Humanity.
