Bike to benefit non-profit community service orgs in Cedar Rapids.
Ride2Raise is a charity bike ride to raise funds for local non-profit organizations who offer support and services to Cedar Rapids communities. Everyone is invited to enjoy a fun day of riding, live music, and food from local vendors.
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!
$35 Adult | $20 child < 12
Registered bicycle riders get a t-shirt, goodie bag, and a link to share with friends and family so they can help contribute by sponsoring your ride. Your personal sponsors can donate a flat amount or pledge a dollar amount per mile up to 20 miles.
