Our goal is to raise $200,000 with this event in 2015 and donations help provide sports and recreation programming to people with disabilities of all ages.
Last year YOU raised about $75,000 using First Giving alone! This year we'd love to double that...
EARN A LONG TRAIL CYCLING JERSEY
Each individual rider who raises $300 or more will receive a Long Trail cycling jersey.
*Please note, individuals must raise a minimum of $300 in order to receive a cycling jersey. If you are riding with teammates, each individual team member must raise their own $300; the total amount can not be divided up amongst the team. Thanks.
TOP INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISING PRIZE
TOP TEAM FUNDRAISING PRIZE
Teams of three or more riders will be considered in the running for the top team fundraising prize - a VIP tour of the brewery the day of the ride with one of the head brewmasters.
HOW TO SET UP A FUNDRAISING PAGE ON FIRST GIVING
If you're participating in the ride, set up your own First Giving page specific to this event. It's easy to create your own page, then you can reach out to friends, family and coworkers and ask them to support you during the ride. Use your email, post on Facebook, tweet your story - all for a great cause! There is a button in the top middle of the page - in green - that says FUNDRAISE. Click on that button to create your page.
If you have friends or coworkers who would like to make a donation and support your fundraising, but don't want to do it online, that's fine. Checks may be made out to Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. Bring all of your "off-line" donations the day of the event and we will apply it to your fundraising requirement.
NOT PARTICIPATING, BUT STILL WANT TO DONATE AND SUPPORT DISABLED SPORTS?
