Hinsdale Man Raising Money Before 280-Mile Bike Ride

Ben Lloyd is one of many using GoFundMe to raise money for special causes.

Ben Lloyd of Hinsdale wants to complete a 280-mile bike ride through Cambodia in June and raise $5,000 to benefit Cambodian children in need.

Lloyd's is one of the many local fundraising campaigns hosted on GoFundMe, a Patch partner.

"This is my opportunity to do something significant and for a cause that I want to support while representing Computershare's (my company) charitable initiative called "Change a Life," Lloyd's GoFundMe page reads. "Both the fundraising and bike ride itself are going to put me well out of my comfort zone. Having the support from my family and friends will help keep me focussed on completing this challenge."

As of Dec. 12, Lloyd had raised $945.
