Wheels and Heels for Meals
EVENT DATE: Oct 03, 2015
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Oct 03, 2015
Wheels/Heels for Meals raises crucial dollars for the Food Pantry of Jeff Davis County in remote far West Texas. This bike ride and walk/run is a fun event, not a race! Participants can ride all 88 miles from Fort Davis to Valentine (the only two towns in a county as large as the state of Delaware!) or other distances on the route. if you ride the whole way, you will be inducted into the prestigious CRAZY 88s! We even have the Princess Tour, 17 miles DOWNHILL! Walkers and runners take a route through historic Fort Davis from one mile to ten miles. Funds go directly to purchase food for families and school children - the schools in Jeff Davis County have no cafeterias and no federal lunch programs!
This a fully supported FUN event. Pit stops for the bike ride are about 15 miles apart and have Gatorade, water, snacks and volunteers to help you. We have SAG vehicles with very kind and understanding drivers who will pick you up and take you back to the start if you are unable to ride any farther or you have a problem with your bike. Helmets are required!
Walkers and runners will have a scenic route through historic Fort Davis with water stops along the way. Distances are anything from one mile to as far as you want to go, as long as you stay on the route. There will also be an event vehicle to help you.

Princess Tour $75 includes van ride to top of mountain, a tiara, and other princess-ish amenities.
