The BFKN Foundation is proud to support Bankruptcy & Creditor Rights Group chair Nathan Q. Rugg, in his pledge to run 3,000 miles in 2022 in an effort to contribute 100 bicycles for World Bicycle Relief. The Foundation’s sponsorship boosted Nathan’s efforts to raise critical funding for specially designed, locally assembled, rugged bicycles for people in need.
World Bicycle Relief is an international, non-profit organization based in Chicago, IL that specializes in large-scale, comprehensive bicycle distribution programs to aid poverty relief in developing countries around the world. The organization is committed to helping people conquer the challenge of distance and achieve independence. This is Nathan's fourth campaign with the organization—his last two campaigns raised over $10,000 each.
Nathan is the chair of the firm's Bankruptcy & Creditor Rights Group. He has extensive experience in all aspects of business reorganizations, workouts, and bankruptcies, inside and outside of court restructurings. Nathan is an active runner, often racing all distances from 5ks to marathons. Combining charity work with running is a passion. Nathan has used running to raise tens of thousands of dollars collectively for Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, Asha for Education, Doctors Without Borders, and World Bicycle Relief.
