Camp Boggy Creek Hosts 3rd Annual Challenge Ride to Raise Money for Seriously Ill Children
Date:7/16/2013

Eustis, FL (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

Camp Boggy Creek will host the 3rd Annual Challenge Ride, a fundraising cycling event, on September 7, 2013. Each cycling team will receive a short story and a picture of a camper they are sponsoring to assist them with raising funds and creating awareness for Camp Boggy Creek. The website for this event can be found at http://www.campboggycreek.org/challengeride.

Cyclists will tackle either a 40 or 60 mile course through scenic Lake County, or a 15-mile off road course through the Seminole State Forest. Individual riders must raise a minimum of $250, while teams must raise at least $250 per participant. Upon registration, each rider receives a personal fundraising webpage, from which s/he can send out emails to friends and supporters, and to which those friends can go to make donations on the rider’s behalf.

Cyclists will start and finish their ride at Camp Boggy Creek. The day will include breakfast at Camp, stocked rest stops and SAG vehicles, along with a catered lunch for all cyclists and their guests, compliments of Golden Corral. Family and friends are welcome to cheer participants on and attend the post-event luncheon.

The fundraising goal for the Challenge Ride is $220,000. The funds raised will enrich the lives of children with serious illnesses and their families by creating a free, safe and medically-sound camp environment.

Adam M. Goldstein, a Partner with Private Wealth Management and the event’s volunteer chairman commented, “The continued success of this event speaks volumes to how strongly people feel about the mission of Camp Boggy Creek. As one of the camper families that has benefited directly from the Camp’s programs, I can speak from experience that this magical place truly does enhance the lives of everyone it touches.”

The Challenge Ride is presented by Wishes by Wyndham, and Wyndham Vacation Ownership. Other sponsors include: Golden Corral, SeaWorld, OutSpoke’n Bike Shop, Private Wealth Management, Perry Ellis International, and The Bond Foundation.
