Jean-Baptiste, Xavier, Julien and myself (aka the Mobylettes) wanted to do something that would help preserve the environment and the trails for future generations. We also wanted to inspire people to take on a tough yet achievable physical challenge...
So we subscribed to Rock the Ridge, a fundraising 50-mile race (relay-style, we are not THAT nuts!), for both the adrenaline but also to raise money for the Mohonk Preserve. (http://www.mohonkpreserve.org/rock-the-ridge).
Now in its 2nd year, Rock The Ridge is a 50-mile endurance challenge set in the natural beauty of the Mohonk Preserve, a vast, non-profit nature preserve situated in the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State. The goal is to traverse a 50-mile course within 24 hours or less by walking, running, or any combination thereof.
Funds raised go to Mohonk Preserve in support of its mission to safeguard the land and encourage people to explore and experience nature. This is a great cause so that you and your beloved ones keep enjoying the region!
We know you have heard it before but even a small donation does make a difference!!!!! :-)
