10th Annual Beth C. Wright Ride for Life
Saturday September 13th, 2014 - Blue Hill Peninsula - Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center
On Saturday, SEPTEMBER 13, the 10th Annual RIDE FOR LIFE will be held on the Blue Hill Peninsula. Starting in Surry, bicycle riders of all ages and levels are invited to ride the 8 mile, 20 mile, 50 mile, or 100 mile rides. With a cookout and entertainment after the ride for all volunteers and riders and a fabulous view of the coast on every ride, this is a not-to-be-missed event benefiting The Beth Wright Center.
New this year: ride 8 miles -- or less! Do not let distance prevent participation! We love little children and new cyclists and older cyclists and anyone who dares to get on a bike and MOVE! So this year, bike just as far as you'd like: 2,000 feet or maybe 5,280 feet or anything up to 8 miles and beyond. And, as in past years, there will be plenty of comfort stations, with fruit, snacks, and water along all the routes. Well-marked signs at each turn and a communication system keeping track of all riders assures that everyone will enjoy a safe and fun ride.
Forming a team is another way to support the event. Teams can be of any number and any affiliation, and the team raising the most money is treated to a wonderful dinner held in their honor a few weeks after the RIDE. Please think about forming a team and then asking your friends and neighbors to pledge money to the Beth C. Wright Center to show their support for you and the Center.
The Ride For Life provides critical funding for the free services, support, and programs offered to cancer survivors, their family and friends by the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center. 100% of funds raised from the Ride for Life will stay in Hancock and Washington counties.
Each pre-registered rider gets a free t-shirt, free BBQ after the Ride, and there will be musical entertainment from 11:30am - 2:00pm.
