About This Activity

Launch U's Cycle for Success fundraiser is both emotionally and physically rewarding! Participating is as easy as three simple steps: 1) Register 2 Raise Money 3) Ride.

The Riding teams will be made up of a maximum of 4 riders, with a designated captain for each team. Teams are encouraged to have fun with the event, creating team names, colors, logos, etc. Each member of the team will alternate riding for 45 minutes on their team’s stationary bike under the upbeat direction of a cycling instructor. Any ambitious, 1-person team riders, will ride all four sessions, resting during the breaks when the other teams change riders. All riders should arrive 30 minutes prior to their riding time to complete registration.

1) Register: Become a Team captain and start a team, or register as a member of a of team by completing the event registration form. For our “Ultimate Riders” challenge yourself  ride the entire four hours on your own by yourself.

2)Raise Money: It is easier than you think and we have helpful tips to get you started. On behalf of the students, each team will begin fundraising with a minimum of $500 and a goal of $1000 per team. Each team will create their own fundraising page where they will direct their friends, family, and coworkers to support their cause. On the day of the event, the team who raises the most money will be presented wil the Launch U grand chamption prize! Remember 100% of the money will directly fund the Launch U program and their scholars!

3) Ride:Education is today’s great equalizer.  By participating, you are not only getting in a great workout, but you are also helping support Chicago’s youth and know you are making a difference in guiding another generation for success. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your designated time.
