FUNDRAISING:
To participate in this event, each rider is required to raise a minimum of $25, although $50 is the suggested goal. Donations can be solicited from neighbors, friends and family. Some individuals get very creative and set up bake sales and other ventures to raise money for their ride. CLICK HERE for more fundraising tips.

Ambitious fundraisers can aim for Heavy Hitter level (over $250 raised) and the Breakaway level (over $750 raised) which will be recognized with a gift from the PMC.

VOLUNTEERS:
Calling everyone who is 14 and older! Come join the fun and volunteer to help at the ride. We have shifts for Saturday and Sunday, as well as all times before, during and after the event. Find a few friends and sign up together to help with everything from check-in to ride monitoring, passing out snacks and face painting to name a few. Community service credit will be issued to those who want it. And, parents, this is a great opportunity to cheer on your rider from the route!
