Annie and I just recently became aware of the Pelotonia Bike Ride which raises funds, 100% of which goes to cancer research here at The Ohio State University. This effort is broadly supported through the local business and university community.
Andrea Garringer, one of our staff, has participated in the past and has put together a team to represent our School which will join many other teams during the ride on August 9 and 10th this year. Riders pledge to raise $1200 or more and each participant pays from their own funds if there are not enough contributors to cover that entry fee.
Andrea is to be congratulated for taking this initiative for representing our School. Please support our Glenn School team by joining us and following the instructions in her email below.
YOU are invited to join the Glenn School Pelotonia Team in the fight to end cancer by clicking here and registering as a rider, virtual rider (fundraiser) or volunteer in Pelotonia this year which will take place August 9-10. In addition to OSU support for Pelotonia, local businesses such as the Limited Brands, Huntington Bank, Nationwide and hundreds of others make the commitment to be a part of this outstanding charity which has raised more than $68M to date. See the amazing things that these funds are doing at http://pelotonia.org/about/money/.
Riders pledge to raise $1,200- $2,200 depending on the length of their rides (from 25 miles to 180 miles). If they don’t meet their fundraising goals, they will personally fund their pledge amounts. If you are interested in becoming a rider, virtual rider (fundraiser) or volunteer on the Glenn School Pelotonia Team through a minimum gift of $10, please contact Andrea Garringer, peloton captain for the Glenn School team, at Garringer.email@example.com. You can also register online directly by visiting http://pelotonia.org/register/. Once registered, please join TEAM BUCKEYE-John Glenn School of Public Affairs to be a part of the Glenn School peloton.
Our goal is to have as many names as possible on our team roster– show your support and register today! So far, we’ve raised $975.00. Help us reach our fundraising goal of $2,500.
Your 2014 Glenn School Faculty & Staff Pelotonia Riders are Craig Boardman, Andrea Garringer, Neal Hooker and Jason Seligman.
