Ride for a Reason
The 2014 Bike-A-Thon event at the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA was a big success, with over 300 participants developing teams and hopping on studio cycling bikes for eight hours to fundraise for the YMCA. The event raised nearly $50,000 thanks to the teams’ fundraising efforts, silent auction and support from the following sponsors: Athens Administrators; Siegel, Moreno & Stettler, APC; Junior Mavericks Running; BioPop; Einstein Bros Bagels; Bruegger’s Bagels; Rudy’s Taco Shop in La Costa; PowerBar; lululemon athletica and Xtreme Fun/XTF DJ Scott Feld. The event focused on a theme of “Share The Road” to promote safety for all drivers, cyclists and pedestrians on the roads. Volunteer Committee Co-Chairs Kate Joiner and Barbara Larson wish to thank the hard-working committee of twelve volunteers, energetic instructors at the event and all those that made the event a true success for a truly worthy cause.
