SHRED fundraising event

SHRED fundraising event

SHRED fundraiser Draper, Utah Sept. 7th

 

SHRED 2019 came about from mixing a desire to do good, with hours and hours of saddle time on a bike. We set out to raise funds and awareness for Wheels4Life and after some planning, coordinating, promoting, and of course, hours and hours of training time, the event came together. Riders of all ages and skill levels were invited to come and ride the Corner Canyon trail network any time throughout the event date. Some riders were on dawn patrol, starting at 5:30 AM, while others started at various times though the day. Others still joined in after being invited by riders on course! One rider, Sam Buckmiller built his entire summer training around climbing and getting donations based on his total ascent. He ended the day at 13,333 feet ( 4,064 m ) of vertical, backed by generous donors who gave accordingly.

We had a fantastic time supporting a great cause! Thanks to all those who gave so willingly, provided prizes, gave needed encouragement, and rode hard. We hope to continue the dream of SHRED, which is Share Hope, Ride Elevated, and Donate!

($ 1,400.- were raised to benefit Wheels 4 Life – thank you all)

Wheels 4 Life “Holiday Initiative” Drive

Wheels 4 Life “Holiday Initiative” Drive

Happy Holiday Season 2018 and welcome to our Wheels 4 Life “Holiday Initiative” drive.

Our aim is to raise enough funding to purchase 200 bicycles before December 31st 2018.

These bikes will go to a project in the Lira region of Uganda, east Africa, run by our project leader Ogwal Moses of Union of Hope Foundation.

To date we have given over 500 bicycles to this region; providing more children with transportation, to and from school, enabling healthcare workers to visit more patients and providing the means for farmers to transport far greater loads to the market.

Please help us to reach our goal this holiday season and change lives through the gift of bikes.

No donation is too small.
