The 2nd year is HERE…AUG 18th & 19th 2012. We are currently looking for teams that want to do ADDITIONAL fundraising…for the Coup de Cascades. 100% of the fundraising that YOU bring in, will go towards ENDING POLIO, with Rotary International. There will be an AWARD for the person/ team who brings in the MOST DOUGH$$$ Thanks for your support! Let’s make it fun..let us know if you want to participate in this CHALLENGE!
2011 is the FIRST year we have done this RACE….. It is an evolution of need and desire to help people…..This Race was created by two very caring community minded people. Redmond Rousers Rotary’s current club President, Kelly Kyle & Shannon Henery, who also lives in Redmond and is an avid cyclist. Shannon spends many months training for big UMCA races like this and has dreamed of a race in the PNW for a while. So the two collaborated & here we are….the 1st ever Coup de Cascades…. A thrilling & beautiful RACE around the Cascade Mountain range, for bicyclers who want an extreme challenge.
By signing up to RACE or even RIDE on a team….makes it possible for us to keep helping people and kids everywhere. POLIO is our big commitment, this year and we will be contributing a large portion of the proceeds to help do that, with the END POLIO NOW campaign. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation & Rotary International are committed to ERADICATE Polio in the world.
Each year, our needs and our aim will change, but our priorities to do the most good will always be constant. The goal is to always be responsible, where we place the money for projects. That is why the Redmond Rousers Rotary Foundation was set up 21 years ago, in 1990 as a 501c3 non-profit charity. We help people in need, whether local or global. We have a say in how the money is spent and where it goes. Our members are driven & encouraged to follow the 4 way test, and make good choices. Registration fees, sponsoring & fundraising helps fulfill our goals…. and TOGETHER, “We make a difference”. thank You for your help.
Thanks to District 5030, and Rotary International, whom we belong to, we are able to leverage parts of this money to increase its overall effectiveness. Your help in finding others and pointing them towards us… is humbling. BE a humanitarian who cares about WORLD issues…it’s humbling & rewarding. We appreciate your support….every year.
THANK YOU, Gratzie, Danka, Nameste’, Gracias.
