Ride 53 is an initiative to help personally get involved with Walk on America. Individuals or groups can pledge to ride in order to help contribute to Walk on America’s greater cause; to raise awareness and donations for the intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) community.
By pledging to Ride 53 you can be apart of the WOA team from your own home town! Your ride can inspire others to follow Brennan's journey, raise awareness for the IDD community and donate to WOA to help those who need us!
Are you a fan of helping contribute to a good cause AND getting some free swag? Then you've come to the right place. Anyone who leads a Ride 53 campaign (individually or a group) will receive a free Walk on America t-shirt! BUT whichever individual or team leader gains the most donations will receive a basketball signed by Brennan and legendary coach, Mike Krzyzewski!
See below to learn how you can get started!
