We want to thank everyone who participated in the success of our Spring Classic Bike Ride on April 13. Over 250 riders and volunteers braved the early morning rain to support our biggest fundraiser of the year.
The event required extensive planning and preparation led by Tara Felts, Martha Russell, Jean Schneebeli and Meg Stein. Members of the Positive Strides’ board of directors and a group of dedicated volunteers were critical to the success of the event. We had volunteer cookie bakers, goodie bag stuffers, sign pounders, sponsor finders, equipment and supply checkers, shoppers, list makers, registration takers, food servers, SAG drivers, set up and clean up people, and all purpose helpers.
Thanks to the wonderful riders; those who were new this year and those who return year after year to support us. We received lots of positive feedback. A couple of favorites:
Due to the generosity of our sponsors, we offset many of our expenses and raised much-needed funds to provide life-changing therapy to residents of the Eastern Shore with physical, cognitive and emotional challenges. All of the proceeds of the Spring Classic go directly to supporting Positive Strides programs. Our equine-assisted activities and therapies help young children, teens, adults, veterans and seniors build their confidence, self-esteem, feelings of competency and independence.
A big shout out and thank you to our Spring Classic sponsors:
As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of our donors, corporate sponsors and volunteers to continue our work. We can’t thank you enough for helping us help some of the most vulnerable people on the Eastern Shore since 1981.
