Join us at the Scandia City Hall and Community Center and ride one of the ALS Minnesota bike routes on Saturday, August 26, 2023.
Have fun on this ALS Minnesota bike ride.
This event presents two routes through rural Washington County, Minnesota. The 50-mile long route starts at 8:30 am, and the 28-mile medium route starts at 9:30 am. A Hiawatha Bike Club ride leader for added safety will lead both routes. You will be asked to sign a waiver before the ride starts.
In addition to providing an enjoyable bike ride, this event has a charitable purpose–to build awareness about ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The charitable purpose of this ride is also to request a donation to the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALSTDI), a research organization devoted to finding treatments and, ultimately, a cure for ALS. ALSTDI is a 501(c)3 non-profit headquartered in Watertown, MA.
To donate, go to the Fundraising Page on the ALSTDI website, https://www.als.net/, and click the ‘Donate’ link at the top. Enter your donation amount, contact, and payment information. Then at the bottom of the page, enter ‘ALS MN Bike Ride’ in response to the question, “Why are you giving to ALS research?”.
