The 23rd annual Kent, Ohio bike and hike event to support cerebral palsy research will be held June 3, 2017. The start/finish is at Stanton Middle School, 1175 Hudson Rd. in Kent. Because our foundation is entirely volunteer-based, we rely on support from the community. If you are interested in planning, donating, riding, walking, please complete this form and a volunteer with contact you shorty. Registration on event day is from 7 to 9:30 a.m. for the long rides, and extended to 10:30 a.m. for the short rides and walk. Pre-registration is available online.
The 2017 Pedal-with-Pete registration brochure is available to download.
The riding routes will travel roads and trails of Kent and surrounding communities in Portage and Summit counties and will be supported again with conveniently located rest areas providing light refreshments and water. The longer rides will also be patrolled by SAG drivers if any assistance is needed by riders.
Watch for links for the 2017 bike routes to be added soon.
Participants can enjoy complimentary lunch, music, massages, and door prizes at the completion of their journey, starting at 10:30 a.m.
Participants select a route to ride or walk at their own pace, and can plan to finish between 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. The event site will close at 2 p.m.
If you need something else to do after our event you can visit Kent’s newly developed downtown which remains open all day and in fact will be hosting the 11th annual Main Street Kent, Art & Wine Festival.
Join us in thanking our 2016 sponsors!
Pedal-with-Pete is also searching for event volunteers and door prize donations. The foundation is all volunteer-based, with approximately 85% of the funds raised going directly to fund cerebral palsy research. Cerebral palsy is caused by abnormalities in parts of the brain that control muscle movements, therefore the research can lead to life-improving treatments. Because Pedal-with- Pete is a 501(c)3 organization, all donations are fully tax-deductible. Pedal-with-Pete was founded by longtime Kent resident Peter Zeidner, who has cerebral palsy, because there was not much research on the disorder. Since its inception in 1993, the foundation has raised more than $1,000,000.
If you want to help Pete with his mission to fund CP research, mail your donation to Pedal-with-Pete, P.O. Box 274, Kent, Ohio 44240. Register for the Kent ride or walk online. Contact ride co-chair Jim Stroble at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or donate door prizes. Pedal-with-Pete thanks you!
