We are sad to announce that we had to cancel the 2nd Annual EDS Ride for a Cause that was scheduled for today at 1 pm, but we ask that you join our virtual “EDS Ride for the EDS Wellness Cause” — We need a virtual village!
Join our virtual EDS Ride for a Cause NOW!
We appreciate those who signed up and those who donated bike seats for the 2nd Annual EDS Ride for a Cause planned for today at Zengo Cycle. As with any charity event, there are minimum costs that must be covered to hold an event and we were just shy of the minimum needed to hold a charity ride at Zengo.
Our take away?
Our virtual “EDS Ride for a Cause” allows for even more people to get involved!
Track your workouts with the Charity Footprints App, submit your steps walked or ran, or the miles you rode per day — all virtually and for a great cause!
