“I just wanted to say a HUGE well done and congratulations on organizing such a truly amazing day. Everything was so wonderfully organized it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of the Ride for Hope. I cannot even begin to imagine what goes into pulling off an event like that but you made it look almost easy!”
“Another tremendous Ride for Hope… Wow, you guys really pull off an impressive event (and I’ve been up north of 50 such events in my time) my sincerest compliments on the organization, comprehensiveness, enthusiasm of your TOTAL team’s efforts. Wouldn’t miss it. See you next year. Thanks again for all the hard work that goes into organizing. It’s an awesome logistical feat, and a great cause.”
We are blessed with tremendous corporate support that has completely underwritten the cost of the Ride each year. This has allowed us to ensure that every single dollar raised by our riders goes directly to the programmes created and supported by the Ride & Run for Hope.
So much is owed to our corporate sponsors- a huge thank you to each of them!
