Stationary bike relay challenge to benefit the YMCA Annual Campaign

At each of the YMCA branches, relay teams ride stationary bikes for this 5 hour event. Their goal is to raise awareness for the Y’s Annual Campaign, which gives children, families, and people of all ages the opportunity to enjoy the YMCA. This event creates excitement and enthusiasm within the community while highlighting the YMCA’s commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.

We count on the generosity of the companies, organizations, and people in our community to help families and individuals from all walks of life be more healthy, confident, connected and secure. By putting together a team for Pedal For A Purpose you help to ensure YMCA programs are available to everyone regardless of age, income or background.

Last year we had a great turn out. This year, help us meet our goal of 60 teams between the three locations.

Pedaling is Easy, Here's How

Put a team together of 10 people, such as friends, family, co-workers or classmates. Choose an hour timeslot for you all to ride together between 8am - 1pm.

Each team member raises a minimum of $100 for a team total of $1,000. Make it simple - ask ten friends for $10 or five friends for $20.

You don't have to be part of a team to participate. Contact the branch you wish to ride at and we will help you find a team. Just raise $100 and you are on your way. 

Get Started Now!

Step 1: Call 509 777 9622  to secure your Team's timeslot with a $50 donation.
Step 2: Download the 2017 Team Registration / Brochure and take completed form to your branch (Central, Valley or North) at least ONE WEEK before your event.
Step 3: Attend a Pedal For A Purpose Team Captain training to receive your team's pledge packets and details about the days of the events.*
