The Red River Chapter of AMBUCS in Fargo, ND held their second annual fundraiser at CycleBar in West Fargo. The event took place on Saturday, September 25 from 2-4pm. It was a windy day, but nothing could keep these Ambucs down!
The bike ride was from 2:15 to 3pm. The 25 riders registered in advance, with a recommended donation of $20 per seat.
Red River also layered on a second fundraiser by partnering with local business Real Good Cookies. They ran a pre-sale cookie fundraiser from September 2-16th, and buyers could choose to pick up their cookies at the CycleBar Fundraiser or have them shipped directly to their homes. The pre-sale was very popular, and 35% of the sales went back to Red River Chapter. The Real Good Cookie van also drive from Grand Forks, ND and sold cookies during the event. Their new Pumpkin Chocolate Cookie was especially popular. Ten percent of on-site sales that day also went to Red River Ambucs.
The chapter had eight members in attendance, and four Amtrykes on display throughout. All-star Red River volunteer Dave put the Amtrykes together. National President Carmela Davis attended and brought a National President visitation patch, and RoughRider Chapter President Kristina Bouley from Bismarck, ND also attended.
The event was the perfect combination of fitness and fun, and altogether raised $1,325.
