Even though early registration has past, local cycling enthusiasts and Children’s Hospital at Erlanger supporters still have an opportunity to participate in the inaugural Cycle for Miracles event at Enterprise South on Saturday, May 25, beginning at 8 a.m.
This year’s event offers people of all cycling levels from a short 15-mile ride to a non competitive 30- or even 60-miles through flat and scenic terrain.
By registering for the event, all participants will be entered in two prize drawings. Two winners will either be rewarded a custom-fit M1 bicycle from Litespeed or a one-week bicycle trip for two in Ireland provided by BikeToursDirect.
Registration fees are now $40 for the 15-mile ride, $50 for the 30-mile ride and $60 for the 60-mile ride. Not only will those who register for the event be eligible for the donations, special incentives will also be available for those who go the extra mile to raise additional funds for Children’s Hospital. For $250, participants will receive a signature Children’s Hospital training jersey they can wear during the event. Other categories include access to VIP Miracle Team Tent or a chance to ride with some of the pro-cyclists who are joining us during Cycle for Miracles.
Contributions raised during the Cycle for Miracles event will go directly toward funding services at Children’s Hospital to care for sick and injured children in the region.
