A record $72,000 raised in a one & two day bike ride
Young’s Jersey Dairy, Yellow Springs, Ohio September 15, 2010
Through the work of local volunteers and bike riding enthusiasts, $72,000 was raised to benefit four local charities in 2010. The four charities are The Alzheimer’s Association, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, United Rehabilitation Services, and South Community Behavioral Healthcare.
The Young’s Ice Cream Charity Bike Ride is organized by a group of local volunteers working with Young’s Jersey Dairy. The ride starts and ends at Young’s, with 28 mile, 56 mile, 83 mile, and 100 mile options. Two-day participants stay overnight in great accommodations at Ohio Northern University. Riders of all ages and abilities raise money for charity and have a good time riding the well – marked routes. Food and ice cream is provided to all volunteers and riders. Each charity provides volunteers to staff the rest stops along the route.
Planning for the Ninth Annual Young’s Ice Cream Charity Bike Ride on July 23 & 24, 2011 is already underway.
