About the Ride

When: Sunday, September 19

Registration Opens: 6:30 AM

70-Mile Route Begins: 7:00 AM

Fundraising - Ride is so important because it raises the essential funds needed to fulfill our mission. This year, we have a goal of $250,000! We have a lot of work to do to get there, but I am confident we can! Fundraising will be the same as it has been in year's past. You will still have your own fundraising page that can be linked to Facebook. You will also be able to recruit teammates to join your cause.

Event Page - We have our Ride to Defeat ALS event page so you can check on your progress and see where you rank amongst your peers. This is where you will register for the event as well! 

Fundraising Incentives - We will announce fundraising prizes for individuals starting at $500 raised! Each individual who raises $500 will receive the signature Ride to Defeat ALS jersey, but above that level here will be things like coffee mugs, and swag to a catered ride day picnic! Keep your eyes on our Facebook page for the official announcement!

Registration Fee Schedule 

Each participant will pay a registration fee to secure their place in the Massachusetts Ride to Defeat ALS .  This registration fee helps to pay for the expenses incurred to participate in the event.

All Riders: $50

Riders Under 16: $45 Parents must stay with their children on their selected route. 

Fundraising Minimum

All riders 18 and older are required to raise a minimum of $250 in donations, in addition to their registration fee, by the day of the event (September 19, 2021). Fundraising for The ALS Association is a very direct way of supporting our mission, and with each person you ask to support you, you are also spreading important awareness for ALS. Fundraising is easy and fun -- and we are here to help you get started and to surpass this fundraising goal!  If you are a first-time fundraiser or are interested in learning more, check out our Fundraising Tips and Tools. Our staff is another resource for you and we will be here for you at every step of the way! Don’t hesitate to reach out and we can come up with a fundraising plan together!
