Ride to Rebuild – Major Storm Recovery Fundraiser
August 9 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
After an historic storm dropped 8+” of rain across VT, affected communities are working to recover their lives and livelihoods. Vermonters have stepped up and offered support in more ways than one to those affected. It has been uplifting to see so many people come together to help.
Several years ago, VMBA recognized the potential for major storms to cause significant damage to the trail systems our Chapters steward, establishing the Major Storm Recovery Fund (MSRF). Over time and in large part thanks to individual donors, we’ve managed to set aside funds our Chapters can access to quickly bring trails back online in the wake of a catastrophic event like we just experienced. Given the widespread nature of the damage, however, the initial estimates conducted by impacted Chapters suggests an additional $30,000, at minimum, is needed to implement necessary repairs across the State. While we continue to support community-focused recovery from the flood, VMBA is also seeking to raise these needed funds.
On August 9th, we’re getting together with some of our favorite partners to help us raise funds for our MSRF and have fun while doing so. VMBA, Bolton Valley and Zero Gravity will be hosting Ride to Rebuild. Join us from 4 – 8 pm for Rocky Mountain Altitude and Instinct demos, incredible raffle prizes, live music, cold beverages, and group rides!
To help us reach our goal, Bolton Valley will be donating 50% of ticket sales and Zero Gravity will donate $1 of each Zero Gravity beverage sold that day to the MSRF.
More VMBA partners from this season wanted to get involved as well and have donated some incredible prizes for our Ride to Rebuild Raffle!Look below for a selection of these awesome items – with all raffle proceeds going to the MSRF.
We hope you’ll join on August 9th and come together to raise money for the trails!
