Over 100 cyclists set out from NewBo City Market on a 20-mile trek in the first annual Ride2Raise. From rider sponsorships to corporate sponsors, Ride2Raise was able to raise over $10,000 for two outreach programs, Marion Cares and His Hands Free Clinic. Thank you to everyone who participated, volunteered, or donated–you have made all the difference. Join us next year for the second annual Ride2Raise!
