Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE™​ Foundation

        "The issues we face are not black or white but American.

                           Together we can make a difference. 

                                      There is nothing we can't do"

                                              -Terry Hardy, Founder and CEO



It is with sadness we announce the passing of Mr. Henry Ray. Mr. Ray was an adviser to Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE Foundation and mentor to its founder in order to better serve Chicago's youth with their pursuit of a post-secondary education. He was a driving force behind thousands of students gaining college degrees who also worked with the legendary Silas Purnell and later Revie Sorey at ADA S. McKinley Community Services.  A legend in his own right, Mr. Purnell worked with the Foundation to keep college tours and college placement at the forefront of our approach to helping students reach their full potential. Deepest condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed.
