Welcome! We're excited that you'll be joining us for the first-ever Climate Rise Virtual Event.
In this time of social distancing, shelter in place orders, and Coronavirus, we wanted to provide our Climate Ride community an opportunity to come together in a virtual event. Our network of beneficiaries are among the many non-profits who need support right now and this event will allow all of us to advocate for them, fundraise, and feel the power of this incredible community.
We'll host a video conference to kick off the event on Saturday, April 18, 2020, at 10:00 AM MST. Then we'll set out on our activities and share our progress with the world. Some will plant gardens, others will ride a metric century or pedal their hearts out on their stationary bikes. You can sew masks for hospitals, bake cookies for friends and family, run up a mountain or you can offer to tune all of your friends' bicycles that have been collecting dust in the garage all winter. Challenge your friends and family to join in their own activity, start a team or join one of the many existing teams of runners, musicians, cyclists and skiers!
Though there is no fundraising minimum for this event we do have some great incentives for those of you who do! You get to choose the beneficiary you support. You can choose to raise funds for them, or raise awareness about their critical work. If you do choose to fundraise for them, funds raised during Climate Rise will be distributed to your beneficiaries shortly after the event so they can put those funds to work as soon as possible.
Raise $200 by April 20, 2020 to get a Climate Ride organic cotton T-shirt.
Raise $500 by April 20, 2020 and get a Climate Ride Jersey.
Raise $1,000 by April 20, 2020 and we'll send you a gift card to your local bike shop.
The overall top fundraiser from this event will get a new bike trainer!
