Lund Ride for Children Bike Winners!

The Lund Ride for Children on Sunday June 1, kicked off a beautiful summer for biking. Two of our riders will now be enjoying new bikes courtesy of North Star Sports, a long time friend of the Ride for Children.  Barb Hughes won a children’s bike in the raffle and plans to give it to her two year old granddaughter.  She hopes that she will practice her technique riding it around the basement during the winter months and be ready next Spring to hit the bike path.

Lund board member and dedicated supporter of the Lund Ride for Children, Katie Halsey, won her bike by rasing the most money through the Ride for Children for the women, children and families of Lund.  Katie raised $3455 herself which helped her team, the Bisby Bikers, to a total of $4755.    Katie plans to spend some time riding by the ocean this summer.

North Star Sports have been involved in the Lund Ride for Children since it began six years ago.  Not only have they donated bikes but they run an onsite bike clinic on the morning of the ride and drive the all important SAG van that makes sure our riders stay safe on the course.  We are so grateful to J.P. and Pat and all our friends at North Star Sports for helping make our Ride for Children a success.

Thank you to these riders and to everyone who participated in the ride, donated or volunteered.  You raised $62,466 to provide hope, opportunity and family for women and children in Vermont.
