(As a side note, this is my 50th post! Wooh! Confetti!) Remember last September when I participated in my very first organized century? It was a pretty epic experience. I was so stoked about it that I wanted to do it again. The riders, volunteers and supporters raised over $26k for three very deserving animal sanctuaries.
Pretty stellar, right?
I contacted the organizers this year with much anticipation only to find that they were taking a break this year. Crestfallen, I realized that the animal sanctuaries can’t take a break as well.
My ambitions aren’t nearly as high as $20k. I am seeking to raise $1000 for Out to Pasture Sanctuary, a local (Estacada, OR) animal rescue and no-kill sanctuary that partner with many other organizations to ensure that animals are treated with kindness and compassion.
Regardless if I meet my goal, I intend to ride on Saturday, September 7th. $1000, I will ride 100 miles. Anything less, I will ride the equivalent. You can donate directly here.
Interested in participating/riding/sponsoring?
• If anyone would like to ride with me, I am asking that they contact me for more details.
• Riders are asked to raise/donate $40 to the fund.
• I am planning on riding 40 miles minimum (if funding is meh.) If there is a lot of participation interest, a reformat to a “real” century may be in order!
