Lincoln boy to bike 100 miles for good cause

By: Lauren Fabrizi

A 10-year-old Lincoln boy will bike from Iowa to Minnesota Wednesday morning as a way to raise money for children in Rwanda.

Andrew Korta has always loved to bike since an early age, and after learning about the non-profit organization, “All Day FORE Africa,” the wheels started turning.

This year, the organization plans to build a $200,000 medical center that will provide health care for nearly 700 children in Rwanda. For Andrew, the decision to bike in support of the cause was an easy one.

“The whole thing is about kids raising money for kids by doing something they love all day,” Andrew said.

The trip will begin in Sioux City Wednesday morning around 4 a.m. But Andrew is not doing it alone. His biggest fans, his parents and sister, will be with him from start to finish.

“It makes me really confident about that ride knowing that they're going to be right there along the way,” Andrew said.

Although Andrew has never biked this far before, he said knowing the trip will help others will give him that final push to make it all the way to Worthington, Minn.

“Really to just make the kids in Rwanda, make their lives better,” Andrew said. “That's basically really what it's all about.”
