The ride is here – we made it! Now it’s time to make sure you’re ready…
Here’s the important info you need in order to have a great weekend:
TEAM FUNDRAISING UPDATE:
We’ve raised $293,976 and are currently the number 1 fundraising team! Great work, let’s keep it up!!
FAQ: What if I don’t meet the $400 minimum before the ride?
If you have not turned in the minimum donation by the start of the event, the National MS Society will discuss payment options with you, including charging the balance on a credit card. No need to stop there, though – you have until August 6, 2016 to be eligible for prizes, and until mid September to turn in donations.
We raised $13,053! HUGE thanks to all who came out to support the event!
The money has already been submitted as a Team Gift and will be split evenly after the ride amongst those who raised the $400 fundraising minimum before May 14th.

Meet at the vintage Allegro coffee bus! Yep, Allegro Coffee has come through again, this year even bigger than before!

START LINING UP AT 6:00am! Plan to begin lining up @ 6:00am near the start line. We’ll be the 5th group out and would hate for someone to be in the bathroom and find that we’re already gone!

Please remember the masseuses are donating their time and thank them with a generous tip!
