When CJ Burford was just 6 years old, like many little boys, he loved to ride his bike. After
hearing a song on the radio and reading Colossians 3:23 from his Bible, he was inspired to ride
his bike for a REASON. In the past two years CJ has ridden over 2500 miles to raise over
$20,000 for charities to help sick children all over the world. In June of 2013, CJ was given the
amazing opportunity to take over a nonprofit corporation that was no longer being used.
Paperwork was completed, a new board of directors was formed, and in July 2013 loveFAR
was official!!

MISSION

To ride bike to raise money for kids who are in need or sick and to inspire others to do whatever
they love to do for a reason.
