ROCHESTER, Minn. - The Greater Rochester Rotary raises funds to support area youth, including through their Believe in Me Bike Ride on Saturday.

From 7 AM to 10 AM, people rode off on their bikes on rides ranging from 7 to 100 miles.

All proceeds benefit the rotary's programs for Rochester area youth, including a program that gives large picture dictionaries to every Rochester public school 3rd grader.

"They are our future world leaders and we know that they will grow up to be wonderful contributors of our planet if we just give them the tools and the resources and the support," explains rotarian Melissa Schmid.
