2012 (November 8-12th) 4th Annual Cancer-Ride For Life
Just thought I'd let ya all know,
We are again back on for another year of raising AWARENESS and FUNDS for a Children's "CANCER" benefit ride. The 4th Annual Cancer-Ride For Life event is in the final planning stages.
This year... will be a NEW route, with new destinations.
The ride will be up to 1000 miles long, over 5 or 6 days.
Traversing the California trails, deserts, and roads and running through Nevada and it's barren land. Of coarse we'll be stopping in and staying for possibly a full day in lovely LAS VEGAS!
... read more here for the tentative plan (it may change a bit); http://cancer-ridefo...l-RidePlan.html
YOU MUST have a bike with a license plate, and a light.
.... read more here on the requirements; http://cancer-ridefo...quirements.html
I have requested information from ST.JUDES to allow us to donate to them. However, not gotten a response back yet... and will update the website once I know more, to whom we are donating.
COST of the ride will only be a "deposit" to cover;
- event t-shirts/sweatshirts/stickers
- hotel rooms (double occupancy)
- event sweep riders (as I pay them to hang in back!)
(total deposit yet TBD)
(please note; you will be required to provide your own "on highway" chase support, or carpool with someone to cover this requirement. You are responsible for all your own chase costs)
YOU will be required to raise money on your own for this event.
... this means, you'll need to come with either a $100 donation (easy way out)... OR, you can take an "event flyer" and "request for donation letter" (that I provide once your signed up) and promote the ride and our cause to local businesses, family, and friends. Last year, an event rider (Guy C) raised up to $1600 on his own! Truly opened my eyes to what we ALL can do to make a difference!!
Last year we raised just about $8400.00 for Rady's Childrens Hospital San Diego.
... I hope we can beat that amount, and raise our goal of $10,000 this year!!
We are also looking for large donations, in the forms of;
- cash/check/charge (directly to the fund)
- raffle items (relating to dirt biking in some way)
- coupons, gift certificates, etc (relating to dirt biking in some way)
- direct support (funds directed to the organizers of the event)
Please pass the word!!
We hope to see you looking to sign up!!
