ROCKLAND, Maine — Lee Karker is going far and wide to raise money for his cherished Meals on Wheels program.

Karker, executive director of MCH which oversees the meals program, took off Saturday morning from the Methodist Conference Home in Rockland for a 100-mile bicycle ride to raise up to $10,000 for the program.

Karker has ridden for the program a couple of times before, the last being in 2008.

The Meals on Wheels program helps provide meals for more than 120 elderly or disabled residents in the local area. More than 32,000 meals were served last year

People who wish to donate to the program can mail a check to MCH or donate online. The link for the program and donations is
