REGISTRATION OPEN FOR PELOTONIA 12
Anyone who would like to participate in Pelotonia 12 as a rider, virtual rider or volunteer should visit http://pelotonia.org/register/ to register for this year's tour, which will unfold Aug. 10-12 on six routes of varying distances between Columbus and Gambier, Ohio (home to Kenyon College).
This webpage provides details and online forms for registering as an adult (16 or older), as a minor (those 14 or 15 may ride the 25- or 50-mile routes), as a virtual rider or as a volunteer. Riders must agree to raise the amount of funds specified for their chosen route. Thanks to generous event underwriters, all money raised by riders, virtual riders and donors will go directly to cancer research at the OSUCCC – James.
Last year's Pelotonia attracted nearly 5,000 riders from 38 states and four nations. It also involved some 1,700 volunteers. The event raised $13.1 million, bringing the three-year fundraising total for Pelotonia to approximately $25.5 million. Questions? Contact Karl Koon, director of development/Pelotonia at the OSUCCC – James, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
