Kingston, ID • June 17
Welcome to our fourth annual Silver Valley Ride to Defeat ALS! Our on day cycling event includes participant support from start to finish, with crewed stops, volunteers and a safety team. The ride takes place in the spectacular historic, scenic Silver Valley and will be raising funds to fight Lou Gehrig's disease.
We encourage our friends living with ALS and their caregivers to join the event. The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes is open to those with mobility disabilities--thus, wheelchairs, manual assistance devices and mobility scooters are permitted for use on all areas available to pedestrian traffic on the Trail.
How to Register? You can register online in three ways: 1. Join a Team -- If you are joining an existing team, you can search for your team and register yourself here. 2. Start a Team -- If you plan to captain a new team and are ready to get the wheels rolling, get started here. 3. Join as an Individual -- If you are signing up on your own, you can get started here.
Fees & Fundraising
Now - May 31st: $65
June 1st - Ride Day: $85
Suggested Fundraising Minimum
We ask that each participant raise a suggested minimum of $150 as they prepare for the Ride. Fundraising for The ALS Association is a very direct way of supporting our mission, but with each person you ask to support you, you are also spreading important awareness for ALS. Fundraising is easy and fun -- and we are here to help you get started and to surpass this fundraising goal!
