We’ll give you water before starting and along the way. We have snacks, beverages, and bathrooms at least every 25 miles.

We will have a snack team and a road team that fixes bikes and provides security, safety, and portable bathrooms where needed.

When we get back to Big Lake Township Lion’s Park, we plan to have space for bicyclists to wind down and have a light supper!

In lieu of our usual supper and speaker/s, End of the Road Celebration, we are having a social media share-a-thon to raise education & awareness and raise funds for an organization/s. Funds made from sponsorship & bicyclists will go to 4 organization that are advocates, including Running For Justice. They will be part of the Share-a-Thon telling what their organization does.

Making a Campaign

Once you have registered, wait to be directed to make a campaign, your next step in the 2 step process. This is where your friends and family will be able to make donations.
We ask you to make a Campaign goal of at least $100. 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
