Texas Baptists are hoping to raise money and awareness of hunger in the state by riding their bikes.
Bike Out Hunger is a six-day ride that started in the Woodlands on Monday. More than 400 miles down the road later, they'll end up in Arlington on Saturday.
The group went to the Capitol Wednesday morning to meet with Todd Staples about hunger issues. In 2010, there were nearly 5 million people in Texas that needed food.
Rand Jenkins is the cyclist that hatched the idea of the ride.
"Met a little bit of angst with some people like 'ahh whose gonna participate in this for a week?' And just to see that grow and see it become what it's becoming, we've got stuff going on in other states, in other countries right now. It's grown further and faster than I can even imagine it would have," Jenkins said.
This ride is part of the Baptists efforts' to raise $1 million for hunger. So far they've raised around $30,000.
