Wow, right?

When we met these folks in person, we were just as amazed by their kick-ass passion for people and planet, as we were by their jaw-dropping fundraising. Bravo to our top fundraisers for going above and beyond fundraising for the Climate Ride cause!

It takes dedication and hard work to achieve fundraising goals at any level and we are grateful to all of our participants for their efforts. Thank you for all you are doing for the betterment of our planet and all of her residents.
