To raise funds, spread awareness and promote adoption in cities throughout America, Ed is biking across the United States. He hopes to raise $1 million to help kids in foster care find their forever homes. A fan of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Ed is a strong believer in the cause. His journey can be followed on Facebook and on Twitter.

When Ed began his career with Wendy’s in the 1980s, he learned the importance of giving back to communities. This piqued his desire to help children in foster care and adoption. For those who are not in a position to help financially, Ed hopes his bike tour will help some consider adoption through foster care.
