Your registration in the ride of $20-$40 (depending on event) is used to support the non-profit programs of the Collierville Literacy Council and the Collierville Rotary. This year we are adding a new component and encouraging participants to fundraise in addition to this. You can do this individually or with a team.
Fundraising is not required to participant in the event. Please feel free to register for the event without fundraising, if that is not of interest to you. But if you are willing and able we encourage all riders to set a fundraising goal. Suggested amount is $500 and we would love for you to consider setting higher goals to make this the best fundraiser ever!
