We did it again!

We hit our goal of raising $20K to feed the kids at Marie L. Greenwood Academy!

The 5th Annual Bike for Backpacks event was a huge success! Integrating our efforts into the larger and long-standing success of the Elephant Rock Cycling Festival turned out to be a winning combination. We learned a great deal about the event and have many ideas for how to expand our presence and the team even more next year. Please save the date, June 1-2, 2019 for next year’s ride.

A big thank you to our top fundraisers – Virgil Seibold, Terri Blattenbauer, Mike Matoush, John and Joann LaPorta, among many others. Thank you to our sponsors Keeping Current Matters, Vantage, and Food for Thought for their incredible support and encouragement. We couldn’t make all of this happen without our supporters.

The funds raised by our riders, donors, and sponsors will go directly to ensure that the 400 K-6th graders at Marie L. Greenwood Academy have food to eat over the weekends throughout the 2018-2019 academic year.

Thank you to everyone who joined in the ride, attended the expo, and cheered from a distance. Your collective efforts allowed us to achieve our goals and help children in need within our local community.

See you next year!
