Calling all cyclists! Habitat Philadelphia's first-ever “Ride For Homes” is June 5 – 8, 2013, and we want you on the team! The four day round-trip ride begins in Philadelphia and winds through Pennsylvania countryside to Harrisburg, where we’ll bike to the State Capitol to advocate for affordable housing legislation. Sign-ups are now open, so hop on that bike and start training—space is limited to 30 riders!
Riders are required to raise a minimum $600 for the ride, including a $100 non-refundable registration fee. The ride cost covers most of your expenses during the trip (including lodging and two meals day), and a significant portion of the funds you raise will go to Habitat Philadelphia's services to low-income families in the city. In the spirit of a charity event, riders are welcome to raise funds beyond the minimum!
If this is your first charity/fundraising ride, you might be asking yourself, "Can I actually raise $600?" The answer is yes! You can definitely raise that much, and you'll probably find that you raise more. We have lots of advice and suggestions to help you tackle the fundraising requirement and successfully support Habitat's programs. Take a look at the Rider Resources link to see what we mean!
After you register, the deadline for collecting the remaining $500 of your fundraising requirement is May 15, 2013.
