This past May, our Ride for the Feast Riders and Crew helped raise $275,000 to support Moveable Feast and our mission to feed people, fight disease, and foster hope. With the money raised, we are able to continue delivering nutritious meals to homebound Marylanders living with HIV/AIDS, breast cancer and now those in treament for blood cancers.
For the 9th year, we are giving you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our clients. This past Wednesday, December 1st, in honor of World AIDS Day, registration officially opened for our next Ride for the Feast being held May 14-15, 2011. Visit www.RideForTheFeast.org to register as a Rider or Crew, make donations, and learn more about this year’s event.
What is different about the 2011 Ride?
- Our Starting Point: This year, for the first time, our ride will begin in Ocean City, MD and end at the offices of Moveable Feast. Though our route may change, the distance remains the same - 140 miles - which is how far our drivers must go to deliver to our farthest client. Moveable Feast will continue to offer bus transportation to the shore, lodging options and even late night karaoke.
- Our Fundraising Goal: Due to the rising costs in feeding our clients, we are increasing the fundraising goal from $1,200 to $1,300. This is the first time we’ve raised the fundraising goal since RFTF began and we are confident you will meet, in fact exceed, this goal. We remain committed to supporting you in your fundraising efforts and will provide advice and opportunities to assist you.
- Crew Registration: With the major changes to our ride this year, our fantastic Crew will be relied upon heavily. In order to help us keep our Crew organized and better informed, this year, we are requiring all volunteers to register online.
- Rider and Crew Emails: 2011 Rider and Crew emails will be sent through a new system. We ask that you please sign up here to ensure you receive the emails as well as “News Bites”, our regular email blast with updates on what is happening at Moveable Feast.
Happy Holidays and hope to see you return in 2011 for another exciting Ride for the Feast!
