We’ve sponsored past events that Go the Distance for Autism has put on. This year, we’re a proud sponsor of the 2015 Go the Distance for Autism Bike Ride.
This fundraising event takes place on Sunday May 31, 2015 and will be happening at Bergen Community College (400 Paramus Road) in Paramus NJ. The event schedule is as follows:
- 7:30 am: Check in and Light Breakfast
- 8:45 am: Opening Ceremony
- 9:00 am: Rides Begin
- 9:30 am – 2:00 pm: Family Fun Area and Food & Beverage Area Open
- 10:00 am – 2:00 pm: Kids Ride Open
5 Rides to Choose From
There are three different long-distance rides that you can take part in: 50 Mile, 25 Mile and 10 Mile. The 25 and 10 Mile rides require participants to be 16 years or older, while riders doing the 10 Mile must be 12 years or older. Roads will not be closed for traffic for these rides.
A 3 Mile Family Ride will also take place, where training wheels are not allowed, and a Kids Ride (where an adult must be present at all times) designed for children 6 years old or under, children over 7 years old that might not be comfortable with the 3 Mile Family Ride and kids riding scooters.
All registered riders will receive an event t-shirt and entry to the Family Fun Area and Food & Beverage Area.
A helmet is required for all riders, regardless of age or skill level.
The table below shows what registration fees and minimum fundraising goals must be given to participate, depending on your age and the type of rider you are. Please go here for some fundraising tips and ideas to help meet your goal.
The funds you’ll be raising can go towards Alpine Learning Group, The EPIC School, Garden Academy and/or REED Academy. You can get more details about the 2015 Go the Distance for Autism Bike Ride here.
