Sunday November 22nd, 18 teams, consisting of four riders each, will embark on a super special cycling journey. We will ride in honor of our fallen heroes in a charity cycle event honoring Special Operations Warrior Foundation. We are asking our teams to donate $200 to participate in the ride, but certainly encourage more if they are up for the challenge! These funds can be given straight from the riders or they can look to get sponsorships from, friends, family or local business. With such a an overwhelmingly huge success from last year, having raised over $10,000, we could not resist the opportunity to give back to this outstanding charity again!
Special Operations Warrior Foundations’ mission is as follows:
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation ensures full financial assistance for a post-secondary degree from an accredited two or four-year college, university, technical, or trade school; and offers family and educational counseling, including in-home tutoring, to the surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel who lose their lives in the line of duty.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation also provides immediate financial assistance to severely wounded and hospitalized special operations personnel.
All riders will receive a Pedalthon T-shirt for their participation. Prizes are given for top dollar raised by a team and individual, top wattage produced from a team and individual rider and more! We have local sponsors on board for post ride delicious food and coffee and in house instructors assisting in a post ride stretch. In addition we have a live DJ sponsored by Nittany Entertainment for our Pedalthon Jam fest!
The support from the PYP community far surpassed our expectations last year. We along with the volunteers at SOWF, are so grateful for the abundance of generosity shown and look forward to another successful year!
