More About Bike for the Brook

You're invited to help celebrate the 5th anniversary of Kerith Brook by riding in "Bike for the Brook". This ride celebrates and acknowledges the safety and privilege of riding on the trails in Fort Wayne and Allen County. You can choose either a 5-mile or 15-mile course along the Fort Wayne trail system beginning at the Indian Trails Park Paviliion near the Jorgensen YMCA.

The founder of Kerith Brook suffered the death of her late husband due to a bicycle accident. Through her experience, she found that there were few places for a grieving person to go just to rest and be around people who understand the grieving process. Ultimately, this led her to the creation of Kerith Brook: a nonprofit organization based in Fort Wayne that assists other adults who are dealing with grief.

Grief is hard. When we’re not dealing with it, we tend to avoid it. When we’re in the midst of it, we’re not sure what to do with it. Often overlooked is the importance of rest, safe space and time. Kerith Brook’s mission is to provide these things to adults dealing with grief from the death of a loved one. The organization provides this through restful retreats that provide a non-judgmental, comfortable and knowledgeable environment, in which to grieve.

Kerith Brook’s founder is a fellow traveler on the grief journey. The loss of her loved one occurred before we had the miles of wonderful trails that allow cyclists to ride safely throughout Fort Wayne and Allen County. This ride is a way of honoring her loved one, supporting others who are grieving and celebrating our trail system for the beauty and safety it provides to cyclists.

Proceeds from this event will help ensure that future guests of the retreats may attend at no cost.
