About This Activity

Ride well. Do Good.

By participating, you get to pair what you love (riding) with doing great good in the community (feeding hungry kids). This year's ride will help fund the weekend backpack feeding program in Mansfield. The children on the reduced or free lunch program during the school week often go hungry over the weekend. In fact, some school districts have nicknamed Monday "throw-up Monday" due to the number of children who come to school so hungry, they make themselves sick eating too much breakfast. We can help end that.

We are also funding a groundbreaking new project, Snow Food, that delivers food to key distribution points where hunger at-risk students live when schools are closed for inclement weather. If a student relies on the food at school, when school is unexpectedly closed, they are stuck at home where hunger dwells.
