FUNDRAISING

After registering, your child can direct all of their donors to contribute online to Hudson Velo riding in VeloSano through this link noting what child they are contributing on behalf of in the RECOGNITION NAME field.

Donate Here or use this link:  http://ccf.convio.net/goto/hudsonvelo 

There is a $25 minimum fundraising amount for each child. 100% of all donations go to fund research at the Cleveland Clinic. We hope that many riders will raise more than this! Our goal is to raise as much money as possible while giving children the opportunity to experience charitable giving for a wonderful cause. Riders are encouraged to raise money on their own (lemonade stands, car wash, birthday money, family & friends, pledge by the lap etc.)

Riders who raise $250 will receive a Big Wheeler sack pack, and the top 3 fundraisers will receive a special recognition at the event.

We strongly encourage donations to be made online whenever possible. All other cash or check donations (made payable to VeloSano) can be brought the day of the ride at check-in. **Please note: minimum must be paid on the day of the ride if your child has not reached the $25 online by then.**

Get the whole family involved and support the event by working at registration, the water stop, ride guide, clean-up and more! Contact Michael Coburn at michael.coburn7@yahoo.com to volunteer.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available and encouraged. We are gratefully accepting individual and corporate donation items (sporting tickets, gift cards, baskets, etc.) to be included in the raffle the day of the ride.



In 4 years, VeloSano has raised nearly $8 million for cancer research at the Cleveland Clinic. The VeloSano Kids Ride gives children the opportunity to pick up their own bikes and start pedaling for a cure. 100% of donations go directly to fund research targeted at curing cancer at the Cleveland Clinic!
