PUBLIC Bikes Header 2014

The Napa Valley Ride to Defeat ALS and Walk is thrilled to partner with PUBLIC Bikes again this year! PUBLIC Bikes is a San Francisco-based bicycle and gear company, designing and selling urban bikes, along with accessories to make riding more enjoyable, practical, and chic.  They have challenged all of our participants to fundraise way above what has ever been done before. 

PUBLIC Bikes has increased their giving and are awarding not 10 but 16 bikes to Napa Valley Ride to Defeat ALS and Walk participants who go above and beyond with their fundraising, recruiting, among other incentives to stay engaged and fight ALS!

 

ALUMNI MONTH CHALLENGES (APRIL)!

M7i orange public FUNDRAISING CHALLENGE:
(1 bike to be awarded)
Each participant who raises $200 during this month will be entered once to win one bike. They will then receive an entry for each additional $200 they raise (ex: $1,000 fundraised = 5 entries). Be sure to ask your donors for bigger contributions. A helpful tip is to ask for $90 since every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes someone loses their battle to the disease. Help us change this statistic!
Dates: April 1st (at midnight) through May 1st (at midnight)

Eligible: only for individuals who have participated in at least one other Napa Valley Ride to Defeat ALS (2005-2016)
