Event Checklist

Get ready for the Ride with this checklist. It’s going to be an amazing day!

Check back in the Spring of 2015 for the Rider’s Guide which has everything you need to know to get ready for Ride.

Reach Your Fundraising Minimum Goal

All Riders (18+) have to raise a minimum of $100 to be able to ride. For VIPs, your fundraising minimum is $1,000.

If you haven’t reached your goal, now is a great time to donate to your own page and send a reminder email to friends and family who haven’t sponsored you yet.
