Ride for Hope
The Jerry Zucker Ride for Hope returns this fall to raise funds to support local cancer charities. Take a ride through the beautiful and quiet roads of the Francis Marion National Forest to fight this disease. Participants include cancer survivors, as well as some cyclists currently undergoing treatment, whose strength and courage is an inspiration to all. Over the last five years, Ride for Hope has raised more than $500,000 for local cancer-related programs. This year, there is a family-friendly ten-mile ride for all ages and abilities, as well as a 30-mile and 100K ride. There are great custom cycling gifts for different levels of fundraising, and a post-ride celebration with pasta, beer and live music.
Awendaw Green, Highway 17 N. Sunday, 8am. $250 Fundraising fee. 843-209-0183, www.charlestonrideforhope.com
