RIDING FOR THE COMMUNITY
BIKE WALK & ROLL IS NOW VIRTUAL
The safety and health of our BIKE, WALK & ROLLERS, their families, our supporters and volunteers are our #1 priority. With that in mind, we have decided to host our BIKE, WALK & ROLL event VIRTUALLY.
The BIKE, WALK & ROLL continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other health authorities and have decided to change our event to a virtual event from September 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020. We will not hold our event at New Harvest Educational Facility.
Even though we won’t be hosting a traditional event, our virtual event will be a chance for you to participate with other people in our community – keeping safe distancing rules in place, of course. This years event will begin on September 1, 2020 and end on September 30, 2020. The entire month of September will be dedicated to Riding, Walking, and Running to fund-raise for At-Risk youth and their families. Prior to event day, we will have fun and engaging ways to connect to our community of supporters.

The finish line may be different this year, but our mission here at F.O.C.I.S. is unwavering.
All fundraising proceeds will go to F.O.C.I.S. a community based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose efforts benefit families by providing a comprehensive list of services that address the urgent & habitual problems which affect our communities. Wherever you are - when you ride, run, walk or volunteer, you move F.O.C.I.S. one step closer to its fundraising goal of $50,000. Your participation in the Bike Walk & Roll will help to make its services possible. This is where F.O.C.I.S.'s motto, "Every Child Deserves A Great Future" begins.
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
Bike Walk & Roll has been riding for 20 years! With nearly 3,400 riders, 3,600 miles, and more than 2,000 volunteers, we’ve been able to continue providing much needed services to our communities. Programs such as: Teen Turnaround, Parent Project, Domestic Abuse Intervention, Men’s Transitional Home, and Celebrate Recovery have made a huge impact in many lives. These programs have been able to help young teens who have experienced difficult challenges at home and school. Our men’s transitional home continues to provide men in need of rehabilitation a place to live and receive the resources they need. Your participation is needed in making the difference to those seeking services from F.O.C.I.S..
