​Ride for the Relay 2021 

Ride for the Relay 2021
This year was a great success.  The All the way Gang listed below with the help of their sponsors and a lot of hard work raised over $12,000.  This will enable us to make a sizeable donation to the Mia Ware Foundation.  (www.miawarefoundation.com) and I will have more about that donation later.Type your paragraph here.

​Congratulations to all those that participated by Riding/Driving part of the way, to those who sponsored others and to those that helped by getting involved.  Several of you made the extra effort but it took all of you to make this LAST RIDE a success.
