Riley Bike-A-Thon 2022 Was a SuccessPosted on October 6, 2022
On Saturday, October 1st, 2022, the bikes came out on a spectacular Fall day to raise money for a great cause.
Each year the Madison students are invited to pedal their bikes in an effort to raise money for sick and injured children who need life-saving care.
The Madison school community began a partnership with Riley Children’s Hospital 32 years ago and has since raised over $100,000 for the organization!
We couldn’t pull this off without the AMAZING support of our neighbors and community. Residents who live along the bike route were contacted and made aware that their mile would be closed to traffic for student safety. Volunteers were stationed at each corner to mark the miles on student pledge cards.
Grandparents, friends, and other family members pledged cash for each mile the students rode during the three hours set aside for the event.
We could not have raised the many tens of thousands of dollars over the years without the great dedication of the Madison community. Thank you for your consideration and support.
Also, events like this don’t happen on their own, we want to give a HUGE shout out to the Madison PTO and long-standing Riley Bike-a-thon Chair, Annette Wisler. Thank you for your commitment and dedication to this event!
