COVID-19

With Covid-19 keeping things “fluid,” we’ve decided to go ahead with our annual bike trip because this year, our efforts are needed more than ever. That being said, we are making lots of Covid-related allowances for this trip. We’ll be working with an outfitter that’s part of the REI brand and will be adhering to their Covid-19 policies. REI’s current policy allows all guests to transfer or cancel reservations without penalty; for a list of full policies please click here. Currently, Massachusetts does not have any travel restrictions, but we recommend checking your local state guidelines before booking travel arrangements.


All registrants will receive exclusive fundraising resources and guidance from our Fundraising Coach.
