    2005 TE Board charity rides

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I think it would be fun to see if we could keep track during the season of how much TE members raise on *all* fundraising rides: from Team Amici who got us off with a bang this year and the MS rides, to ALC4, to Bike Against the Odds in October.

    I bet the combined figure raised would be staggering.

    Could we get a final count from Team Amici and any other rides?

    My fundraiser

    To benefit the my place of employment's Relay for Life team for the American Cancer Society, back in March when I did the McClane Pacific Foothills Century, I sent a flyer attachment with an email to my coworkers, friends, and family members. Since at that time I wasn't sure if I could do the Relay's walk/run event with our team (because of my husband's work schedule), I tried to think of another way that I could contribute to our team and to the A.C.S. without actually participating in the walk. The team had put on a few fundraising events, booksales and such, so I had the idea to do a "pledge" thing sortof like the Walk-a-Thon, only the pledges would be just a few cents per mile that I rode. I did tell everyone that I could and intended to do the full metric century (ended up being 67 miles) so that they could calculate approximately how much they would donate in the end.

    Astonishingly, even though I didn't get as many pledges as I had hoped, the amounts were high. I got $600 worth in pledges, and after all collections were made after the ride, I ended up raising $701. One person upped her donation from $67 to $150.00, as she had recently lost a friend to cancer. As sortof a way to say thanks to everyone's generosity and to help carry me over the hills, I printed a list of all the names of the pledges and carried it with me during the ride. That way, symbolically, everyone was there riding with me in my "stadium" of foothills as I rode, not walked.

    Not only did I have a blast doing the century, but I got a really good feeling from it, knowing I was helping to raise funds to find a cure for cancer. How cool is that?! A few months later, it still makes me smile.

    Well, I dunno if we can stretch the numbers to year 2000 I was thinking the idea was how much we will have raised for 2005- like a yearly thing!

    hmmm, we could just add it in since we've never done this on the board before as far as I know, wanna add figures to date then ....try and beat that figure next year? that's setting the bar kinda high.

    or stick with '05? because if we did that I'd get to add CAR4, ALC3, Bike Against the Odds .....

    Nice job there spazz *\o/* *\o/* *\o/*
