The Ride 430 Challenge is a non-profit cycling event that helps give America’s injured military service people and their families hope and assistance as they travel the road to recovery.
The Ride is a four-day, 430-miles challenge in which cyclists must complete more than 100 miles each day, including mountain climbs. In addition to training and completing the ride, participants must fundraise, with the average rider raising more than $6,600 for the cause, more per rider than any event of its kind.
Money raised by the Ride 430 Challenge supplements military assistance and bridges gaps to help injured service people and families who lost loved ones recover. Our funding helps provide everything from financial assistance and scholarships to adaptive sports equipment and camps for kids who’ve lost a parent in combat.
The average charitable bike ride raises $12,000 a year. In our first four years, Ride 430 Challenge riders raised $825,000.
In 2012, we hope to raise $350,000.
