On our first charity ride, we raised over $20,000! We gave 100% of those funds to the three worthy charities above: Day of Giving, Across the Street Homes, and Habitat for Humanity.
On May 29, 2020 I will take my bike and fly to Astoria Oregon. My trip will begin on Memorial Day weekend and I will ride back to Cheyenne on The Trans American Trail. Cruising through some of the most beautiful country, my trip will take me through Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
The Wyoming Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association is three full-time staff and many wonderful volunteers serving the 10,000 Wyomingites living with Alzheimer's and other dementias, along with their 28,000 caregivers and the general public. Together, we present community education programs; offer support groups for caregivers; provide individual care consultations; and advocate on the state and federal levels for our constituents. We also raise the funds needed to support national and international research and fuel our Wyoming mission.
"I knew I was about to embark on an adventure of a lifetime. What I didn't realize was the overwhelming support and giving from people all over."
My first cross country trek was in 2015 when I bicycled from Cheyenne to San Francisco. What could possibly make my next ride even better? Well, to incorporate a way to give back to others with fundraising. I've ridden from coast to coast and up to Banff Canada and this ride along the Trans American Trail will be both challenging and beautiful!
We have been riding "with purpose" to raise money for local charities since 2016. Providing funds for food, clothing, shelter and suicide awareness and prevention we have given $25,000 to the following charities:
Do you have a bike? Join the club for regular group rides. This is not a race, rather a fun outdoor activity with friends. The rides are open to riders of all levels. Hey, it's Wyoming and our summers are short, so we will be having rides throughout winter, weather permitting. Bundle up buttercup and let's pedal to the local coffee shop, or cafe for some weekend fun.
