11th Annual Wear Yellow Ride, Fun Run & Walk
A Ride for Ride A Ride
With the success of the 10th Annual Wear Yellow Ride, the theme for the 11th Annual ride reflects the support that each cyclist will give to our Wear Yellow Cab Ride Program. The fee for each rider on the Wear Yellow Ride will support one cab ride for a cancer patient who may not have adequate transportation to get to their treatments.
Wear Yellow Nebraska will be hosting the 11th Annual Wear Yellow Ride on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at the Strategic Air & Space Museum, Ashland, Nebraska. The bike tour aims to raise funds and awareness for Wear Yellow Nebraska which is a local grassroots organization fighting against cancer through advocacy, awareness and fundraising. We want to inspire others in the community to take action in our fight. Our mission is to unite Nebraskans in the fight against cancer through advocacy, awareness and fundraising.
Over 500 participants from as far as North Platte, Syracuse, Fremont, Council Bluffs, Lincoln, and the Omaha, Nebraska metro area will choose their course distance of 10, 22, 38, 51, and 62 miles. All courses will close at 1pm and the Pancake Man will stop serving at that time. Please choose a route that you can complete by this allotted time.
Walk & Fun Run
That's right! We know that we have a lot of family members who are not cyclists but still come out to the Wear Yellow Ride to support their cycling family members. This year we added an event for those who want to lace up the walking/jogging/running shoes and help their fellow Nebraskans in the fight against cancer. The Fun Run & Walk will follow an approximate 3.5 mile course from the SAC Museum through the Mahoney State Park. A Power stop will be included at the half way point.
