Scarnati/Stack 100 – Bike Ride for Children’s Hospitals

Scarnati/ Stack 100

Bike Ride for Children’s Hospitals

September 9-11, 2016

OVERVIEW

On Friday, September 9th, riders began the 8th Annual, 3-day, 100-mile charity bike ride from Gettysburg to Annville to benefit Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh (CHP), The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.

Over the last eight years, this event has raised over $1 million.  The proceeds from the 2016 ride once again were split equally among CHP, CHOP, and Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.  It is very exciting for us to be able to contribute to these three great facilities and to show appreciation for the work they do and have done for so many children around the world.
