Join us at the 3rd annual think MTB club benefit ride for Mark J Reynolds.
This will be our 3rd annual fund raising day for MJR. We meet at Wahoo’s by Whiting, and have an un-organized ride around the park (everyone can go their own way), and meet at the bench at a specified time. We then ride back to Wahoo’s for a lunch on thinkMTB, and a raffle where all of the ticket proceeds go to the fund.
In the previous 2 years, we have raised enough money to put approximately 200 bikes into children’s hands. We do a give-away a few months after the ride/event, usually in the local Olive Crest parking lot.
The MJR fund raises money to purchase bicycles for first time kids, that otherwise would not be able to get a bike due to financial circumstances.
thinkMTB Club is working on getting year-round fund raising going for this, as as mentioned, it’s all about getting bikes into their hands, and not specifically this one event. The event allows us to highlight the fund once a year, and introduce people to the fund, as well as getting future contacts for riding with others. The bike give-away later on, is awesome, as you can help the kids get accustomed to their new bikes, and share in their smiles as they choose a bike, helmet, and take their new bike for a quick spin.
To contribute to the fund, just go here:
Thank you so much for any assistance you can provide in this ongoing effort to help the children.
