Thank you for your interest in supporting The Ride for Hope 2013.
The Ride for Hope is a cycling event, family festival, Vendor Expo and Health Fair. It also provides a time to remember those we’ve lost, cheer on those who are fighting and an opportunity to spread hope and celebrate life! These are all the things my dear friend – and The Ride’s creator – Lou Farrah, envisioned. I stand behind this community event because I believe in Lou’s vision to bring hope to cancer patients and their family members right here in the Big Bend region. To that end, The Ride for Hope raises funds for the Tallahassee Memorial Cancer Center and the people it serves.
The Ride for Hope will always be a ‘Ride’ and open to those of all physical abilities. We are inspired by every rider that crosses the finish line. To enhance the event and draw in riders from throughout the region, we are adding the timing chip feature, which will be available to the Full & Metric Century registrants. The timing chip is optional, so it will add a competitive, challenging edge for the riders who choose to get one, while the rest of the riders enjoy the course at whatever pace they like. A unique, custom-made jersey will be awarded to the winner of each of the three timed elements: Full Century Overall Winner, Metric Century Overall Winner and the King of the Hill Winner (a timed stretch of road that includes TS Green and Fire Tower Hill, available to Full Century participants only).
Volunteering as the Ride Director is an honor and a privilege, and I invite you to join The Ride for Hope Team. The proceeds from The Ride for Hope will change the lives of many, and will offer hope to those who need it the most. There are so many ways to be involved!
