Benjamin's Family Bike Ride 2009

Posted by bentjmills1219 on October 3, 2009 at 10:16 AM

Hello everyone!

September 27th was a rainy day.  But that didn't stop yet another bike ride for Benjamin's Fund.  Thankfully, our riders braved the weather to ride either 10 or 25 miles donating their time & money to Ben's Fund.  The riders were greeted with a breakfast of fruits, granola bars, donuts & pastry.  (Thank you to Dunkin Donuts & Arts Bakery for your donations!) 

We were lucky to be joined by our friend, Trent, who stopped by with his Mom & sister to start the ride for us by ringing the cowbells.  Trent was Ben's Fund's first donation recipient and we were so happy to see him and have him help us out. 

The riders came back to enjoy a cook-out including burgers, dogs & lots of homemade desserts (including Tina's famous chocolate chip cookies!)  Then we had some great raffle prizes to give away while we hung out enjoying the company and the food.

Thank you to everyone who made this event yet another success.  A very special thank you to Liz & Scott for taking this ride on as their own fundraiser and doing all of the "legwork" for it.  We appreciate your help & your time with making this event a success!

Thank you to everyone who came out to ride, those who came to support without riding, those who came for the cook-out/raffles, those who donated items for raffle, those who donated their time volunteering, etc, etc, etc.  WE APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU AND CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOUR HELP!

 

Check out photos from the ride in our photo gallery and also on the link below you can check out the pictures that the Taunton Daily Gazette put in the paper.  Thank you to Mike Gay for coming out in the rain to take them for us!
