MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
It’s hard to believe that more than two months have passed since the 46th Bike-a-thon. I am pleased to report that it was an overwhelming success! It also means that we are less than 10 months away from the 47th ride on June 9, 2019.
Don't forget that our fundraising continues until midnight on August 31. That means there is still time to raise additional funds in the fight against cancer. We are fast approaching the $1.4 million mark, and we anticipate surpassing this number. Individuals and teams are hosting last-minute fundraising events to help reach and beat their goals. The Bike-a-thon committee is doing just that at Winnie's of Manayunk - see the details below and join us.
Our committee had its wrap-up meeting and reviewed the responses to our ride survey. We had more than 20% of participants respond to our questions. This high response percentage is a tribute to you and shows your genuine interest in our ride and your comfort in informing us of your thoughts about the event so that we can better serve you. Your responses and comments assist us in assessing our event to understand what worked and what needs improvement. It lays the foundation for the task at hand for the 2019 committee.
As part of the survey, we had a record number of individuals expressing an interest in getting more involved with our event and becoming a member of the committee. We're going to host informational sessions for these individuals and are looking forward to having a number of them join our committee and contributing to the planning for 2019. Watch for periodic updates as the plan gets underway. We will be introducing some fun, creative and unique ways of getting together while raising funds for the upcoming year. Enjoy the rest of summer and safe riding.
