If you know someone close to you who you wish to sponsor, or if you simply wish to participate as a team member in support of this effort, we encourage you to join our team “Riding for Strides”. You can create your own page off of our team page and participate as a fund raiser, a walker, a donator,…
or all of the above!

We will be updating photos and our blogs on each of our pages as we progress through the fall and until the event date in October to keep you all informed.

Tea and I will be appearing at local riding events with items for purchase with in an effort to raise funds for this event. Please keep watching this thread for updates!

------------------------

The first item for purchase will be through Tea at Portillos on Wednesday, 8/19. Tea will be contributing 100% of proceeds to her mom’s team page for this event. All future contributions will go towards the “Riding for Strides” team.

It's good to see other people on this site doing this. I look forward to seeing more information about your poker run, and will see what I can do to contribute to your team even though I'm on another team. We gotta get Tea some donations

Updated first post with our team logo!

This logo will be used for TSHIRTS and limited amount of stickers

A more simple logo is being utilized for a plentiful amount of stickers.... more to come on price, sample, and availability.

Thank you to everyone so far for your support! We are starting to make it up towards our goal!

If anyone else is interested in joining our team... there is still time!

Hello Everyone!

THE STICKERS ARE READY!

Starting this weekend, you will be able to purchase these stickers.

PRICING:
$2 - Small Stickers
$4 - Medium-sized Stickers


See attached photo for actual size comparison.

Team members will be available at various rides, meetings, and events for you to purchase these. We will post in this thread as well as event threads in which these stickers will be available.

We are still working on the poker run. We are looking for support from local businesses for incentives. Business owners - if interested, please contact me via PM. We are hoping the weather holds out for us up until our walk event! Cross your fingers!

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who has begun to support us so far! You're awesome!

I want to take a moment to send out another HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has donated towards this cause so far! And we welcome any of you who wish to come spend the day with us on Sunday, Oct 18th to come on out and experience the strength in this effort. Following the walk I am hoping to hit up some lunch. Anyone who wants to join us for the event and to grab lunch are welcome.

We would love to have everyone there supporting this effort, not only by your fellow rider women here on the RIDING FOR STRIDES team, but all of the thousands of individuals and teams who will also be participating in this event from all over Chicagoland. Make it great - and sport your riding garb and pink!

It would be SO AWESOME to have you all there!

A breakfast location will be posted soon as our meet spot. Visit back to this thread for an update.



GO - TEAM - RIDING FOR STRIDES! YOU'RE DOING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!
