I am busy at work preparing for our July County Board meetings and continuing on our general election campaign, but I want to take a break from business and politics and write to you about the Third Annual Kennan Garvey Memorial Ride, coming up on Saturday, August 6th to benefit Phoenix Bikes. This ride, dedicated in memory of my late husband, helps Phoenix Bikes raise money to build a new facility where they will be able to combine space for teaching and working on bikes with storage and work areas to make a community bicycle space that will be one of the best in the nation. Here is a picture is from last year’s ride.
There are 15-, 30-, 60-, 90-, and 100-mile options for this ride, so it is open to riders of all ages and experience levels. The entry fee is $25, with a suggested fundraising goal of $500 per rider (registered Phoenix Bikes youth receive complimentary ride entry). All riders and volunteers will receive a FREE shirt and boxed lunch. PLUS, all those who meet or exceed the $500 fundraising goal will receive special fundraising incentive prize!
• Join the “KGMR2016 Team” and set up your fundraising page (select the “Fundraise for this Campaign” button)
• Sponsor a rider/donate to the ride (select rider’s fundraising page under “The Team”)
• If bike riding isn’t your thing, you can volunteer
I hope that you will be able to join or support this fun event for a great cause.
