St. Louis (KSDK) - Another special bike ride we want to tell you about. This one was organized by 18-year-old Bryant Powell.
Powell spent the first eight years of his life in foster care. He moved from home to home before finally being adopted at 11-years-old, but his journey wasn't over yet. Powell says he still needed a lot of support.
Along with his new family, he also found comfort in the book "Maybe Days." It was written for kids in foster care.
Now he's trying to raise $1,000 to buy copies of the book for other kids.
"I just want to make sure I know that other kids are getting the help that is needed to get through struggle and to let them know that they don't need to keep struggling. They can fight through it. They can be successful," said Powell.
This is all part of Powell's Eagle Scout project.
To raise the money, he's holding a 20 mile bike ride fundraiser, which happens Saturday. They're riding from Signal Hill School in Belleville to the Southwestern Illinois College campus.
Donations can be sent to: Lewis & Clark Council, 225 W. Main, Belleville, IL 62220, Attn: Bryant Powell.
