Samaritan Ministries’ Nineth Annual Tour de Llama Bike Ride Marks A New Finish Line!

We had a LL-AMAZING time at Tour de Llama 2023

With clear blue skies and cool winds, it was a perfect day to ride. 289 cyclists, supporters, volunteers, and Project Cornerstone men gathered in support of Samaritan Ministries’ mission of providing food, shelter, and hope through Christian love in Winston-Salem. We had 50 sponsors at various levels join our presenting sponsor, Arbor Investment Advisors, to help to make the day a great success.

“We are here to support Samarian Ministries and all the people they help through housing, food, and Christianity. We are biking with a purpose!” – Beverly Williford, Black Girls Do Bike Group Rider.

Special thanks to our friends at Divine Llama Vineyards , HanesBrands Inc., and Ken’s Bike Shop, for their generosity and support of our annual event. We are grateful to everyone who participated in the ride, shared our story, or gave towards our mission. Because of your efforts, we raised $48,160, exceeding the goal.

Thank you for helping us feed and shelter those in need this summer.

We cannot wait to see everyone again next year!
