Fundraising

Adult riders (16 and older) are required to raise $500 in donations and child riders are required to raise $125. If you have not raised the minimum by the time you check in at the tour, you will need to make a donation of that remaining amount when you check in, in order to participate. Your donation can be refunded up until Aug. 31 if you receive other donations after the tour.

Make 1K for Kids your personal fundraising mantra. For every $1,000 you raise, you will receive one entry into a drawing for the chance to win a prize after the tour!

*New this year* Donors are able to designate their gift to a team without having to choose an individual rider(s) to credit. Learn more about team fundraising...
