  • Another person to team up with (not required but way safer)

  • Waiver will be sent via e-mail or at event, to be signed and returned; no riding without us having this

We’ll give you water before starting and have water & snacks at our 1 break stop. We will have a few person road team that provides security & safety to you!

When we get back to Big Lake Township Lion’s Park, we plan to have space for bicyclists to wind down and get snacks.

From 5:00-7:00 P.M. we will have our “End of the Road Celebration.” Invite family, friends and those who donated to your Bike-A-Thon Campaign for complimentary light supper & speakers.

Making a Campaign

Once you have registered, wait a few minutes to be directed to making a campaign, your last step in a 2 step process. Check your junk mail if you don’t get this link in your e-mail. This is how your friends and family will be able to make donations, on your campaign!
We ask you to make a Campaign goal of at least $75. Once you submitted a campaign, you’ll be emailed a link to give to family, friends, and coworkers. Encourage them to give towards your cycling campaign.
We’re a non-profit and donations you make or are given to your campaign, are deductible; not registration. We prefer donations to be given online but if you get a check or cash and they want a deduction that’s your responsibility to write that information down and e-mail to us. advocate@runningforjustice.org
