Why We Ride
Ever since our first run, our priority has always been to use each run's proceeds toward someone in the community who could use a little extra help. Throughout the years, we've raised money for a variety of causes ranging from donations to the local fire department, providing much-needed equipment to the little league baseball club, and helping families rebuild after losing their homes to fires and natural disasters. In 2017, we decided to narrow our focus and created the Bob Mitchell Memorial Scholarship Fund with the goal of providing financial aid to a local student pursuing higher education.
- Previous scholarship winners:
- 2017: Jaison Andrist
- 2018: Lane Brown
- 2019: Mayra Flores
- 2020: Nathan Holcomb
- 2021: Bridget Ramirez-Hernandez
If you'd like to apply for the 2022 scholarship, submit your application here by April 29!
