THANK YOU

 

Thanks to all of our riders, volunteers, and sponsors. You made the inaugural 2019 ride a success.

THE EVENT

This fun and unique event helps to promote inclusive riding for all abilities, we invite corporate teams of 10 each to take turns riding stationary bikes to help raise funds for our FREEDOM Program. This very important program helps children with disabilities get a custom built adaptive bicycle and low-income children to receive their 'First Bikes'. The Variety Gold Heart Relay is “geared” towards raising funds so that kids can be kids.  Open to riders of all abilities, this event brings companies together to provide much-needed equipment to kids who need it most!​
