While we’d rather ride with you in person, we’ve transitioned this year’s ride into a virtual challenge jam-packed with surprises and fun for everyone. We will end the effort by celebrating together on July 25th, 2020 at noon with a virtual event you won't want to miss! (EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org for the meeting coordinates.)
Set an activity challenge (cycling, running, walking, wheeling, stretching, logging minutes in your stander, doing yoga...) for yourself for the month of July and join us online to report your progress, help spread awareness, and raise funds for FA research. Our goal as a team is to travel around the Great Lakes so every single mile counts! If you’re active with something other than cycling, 10 minutes of an activity equals 1 mile. We’re going to need everyone’s miles and minutes to reach our goal.
Here is your checklist to make sure you are ready to hit the ground running by July 1st:
- Hit the Yellow button above to Register for FREE and set up your fundraising page!
- Link your fundraing page to Facebook.
- Join the rideATAXIA Chicago Summer Challenge Facebook Group. This is the place to find challenges, exciting news, and information about ride day so make sure you don’t skip this step!
- Join the rideATAXIA Chicago Strava Club if your activity goal involves logging miles. Our goal for Chicago is to lap the Great Lakes! Check out the Facebook group for weekly progress updates.
