Ride For Kids - May 4, 2008

The fifth annual Triangle Ride for Kids was an excellent event as usual. The weather was perfect for the ride starting at Jordan Lake's White Oak Recreation Area.

Once again, we blew out our financial goal. Last year we raised $101,000. The goal was $110,000 for this year and we hit $138,500.

The top fundraisers were Tommy Lee and Melissa Edwards from Chatham CBA.

Over 575 riders riding on 408 bikes rode the 52 mile ride through the most beautiful areas of Chatham County. There were actually 675 participants at this event. Approximately 100 people just showed up to donate money and support the kids.

Special thanks goes out to the 140 volunteers who organized the Ride for Kids.
See you all next year on the first Sunday in May for Ride For Kids 2009.
