ABOUT THE RIDE

The 2014 ride is the 6th annual charity bike ride for children’s hospitals.   Over the last five years, this event has raised approximately $653,000.

Money raised during the 2014 ride will be split equally among the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia & the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.

Thank you to everyone who helps to make the ride such a success! 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.
