BENEFITING: MILITARY FAMILY LIFESTYLE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
EVENT: Veterans Charity Challenge 2
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2014
Military Family LifeStyle Charitable Foundation is combining with the Warrior Ride to present a cycling event in Mint Hill and the surrounding area from the 22nd thru the 25th of October 2014.
This year is our 5th ride but the first time we are making this an event. We want to involve as much of the local community as possible. Our warriors will arrive on Wednesday and be fitted on cycles that accent their specific needs. Thursday morning we will ride through downtown Charlotte and visit sponsors, schools, and points of interest. Friday we will ride through the Matthews / Mint Hill area also visiting sponsors, schools, and points of interest. Local supporters and friends are welcome to join us on the Thursday and Friday rides by simply registering and making a donation. The rides will be at a conversational pace of 8-10 miles an hour and will make frequent stops for water and to keep the group together.
Our Saturday ride will follow the same routes we have been using the last 4 years but this year we have incorporated a “Family Ride” into the event. The family ride will allow a family of 4 to make a donation of 35$ and ride as many laps on the ½ mile path around the soccer fields or the ¾ mile woods path in the park. All 4 will get a BBQ meal at the end of their ride and have an opportunity to chat with the warriors as they return from their ride.
We have sponsorships beginning at $500 for a table on the primary routes or on the Family Routes. For more information please contact: morrisj@MFLCF.org
