Details:
The Hartford & RE/MAX Results Breast Cancer Ride, in its sixth year, benefiting those affected by breast cancer in our community, will take place August 3-4, 2013.  This two-day fundraising Ride will start and stop at Eagan Community Center.  A fun and safe route has been selected to take Riders down to our overnight campsite, Treasure Island Resort and Casino. 

Fundraising:
This Ride is all about raising funds and awareness for breast cancer.  Adult Riders are required to raise $750; minors and full-time students are required to raise $375.  $750 is just 10 friends at $75 each.  Plus, they can easily spread out that donation by giving $25 a month for just three months.  We are pretty confident that you have 10 people in your life touched by breast cancer or by your commitment to do the Ride.  (Not convinced?  Okay, then find 25 friends who can all give just $30 - that's just $10 a month for just three months.) 
On average, our Riders raise over $1,025 each year. 

The Route:
Start/stop:
  Eagan Community Center.  Overnight: Treasure Island Resort & Casino.  Pit Stops: Every 10-20 miles.  Day 1: 44 miles (optional extension route, which makes the day's total 79 miles).  Day 2: 55 miles (optional shortcut only 42 miles).  Concerned about the mileage?:  Our Sweep Crew has you covered should you need a lift to the next Pit Stop. 

Please note, while the Ride is officially two days, you have the option of joining us for just one of the days.  Contact the Ride office for more info.  To learn more about our beautiful, southern route, click here.
