Please SAVE THE DATE for the Saturday, July 27th, 2019 Pedal with Pete, Columbus event! We’d love to have your help and support as a volunteer, sponsor, donor, and/or participant!
We are celebrating National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day by opening registration for the July 27th event on March 25th. On this date, and this date only, we are offering a GREATLY reduced fee of $25 for Adult registrations! Fees will be higher after March 25th.
Why would we offer such a low-low price? Because… the sooner you register, the sooner you can take advantage of some wonderful new ways to partner for cerebral palsy research: We at Pedal with Pete are launching a new Online Registration system, STRIDE, provided by the Wells Foundation, and for the first time, as you register or donate,
- You’ll optionally be able to tell YOUR story about why you donate or participate and you’ll be given a link to that story that you can share with your friends and family, inviting them to read your story and donate to cerebral palsy to help you reach a fund-raising goal!
- Also, you’ll have a chance to form or join a TEAM if you like through this registration process and support one another through the pre-season!
To Pre-register on Opening Day, March 25th, or to take advantage of other pre-season discounts, just return to this webpage and click the “register here” button. You’ll be transferred to the STRIDE website for early registration.
March 25th is almost here… The sooner you register, the sooner you’ll be partnering to fund cerebral palsy research!
