For the third year in a row, Avery's Hope has brought an amazing cycling event to Hunterdon County. New for 2018, our two longer distances will head out and back from Hunterdon County NJ and head through beautiful Lambertville and then out into the rolling hills of Bucks County, PA and back.

Why? Because Avery's Hope's mission is to raise money and awareness for children with rare Gastrointestinal Diseases and their families who struggle with the financial burdens of living rare. Avery's Hope has started the HOPE Fund for the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and commited to a yearly contribution to The Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh's Acacia Puleo Small Bowel/Liver Transplant Patient Assistance Fund.

What does that mean for our participants? Do you have to raise money? Will we let you ride if you don't fundraise?

We ask that you make a concerted effort to fundraise and we will offer our suggested amounts. That said, of course we will let you ride. Raising awareness is very important to our mission too, but a little fundraising would go a really long way. When you sign up to ride, you can set up your Pledgereg.com page too, making it super easy for our participants to fundraise via social media, email, or snail mail.

Suggested Amounts:

15 Mile Family Friendly Towpath Ride - $50+

31 Mile - $150+

62 Mile - $200+

100 Mile - $250+

Need help with fundraising? Don't hesitate to reach out to our organization; we will be glad to offer some tried and true suggestions.
