The Kansas City Bier Meisters have partnered with the Joel's Ride: Wheels for Meals for an American Homebrew Association sactioned beer competition.  All entry fees go directly to the foundation.  

Joel's Ride: Wheels for Meals is an annual Overland Park, Kansas bicycle ride in memory of Joel Winston, a father, husband, son and friend to many in the community, who died from cancer in 2006. Rain or shine, Joel was always up for a ride. He was committed to helping others, especially those who weren't able to help themselves. We love uniting Joel's passion for cycling with his commitment to help those in need.

10-mile, 25-mile, and 40-mile routes are offered, with SAG wagon support, a marked route with map, and a T-shirt for all early registrations. Riders of all ages and abilities welcome. The routes start and end at Congregation Beth Torah, 6100 W. 127th Street, Overland Park, Kansas 66209.

The Joel H. Winston Social Action Fund makes possible congregational activities that benefit local agencies like reStart, Inc., Harvesters, Savehome and other organizations fighting poverty, hunger and illness in the community
