The Britton Fund Ride, taking place on May 17, 2021, is a volunteer program of The Britton Fund, Inc.
As a Ride volunteer, you will help The Britton Fund, Inc. generate awareness of its mission and objectives; attract volunteers to The Britton Fund, Inc.’s programs and activities; and be an advocate for increased research and education in tree care.
The Britton Fund, Inc. asks a lot of its Ride volunteers. First, we ask you to commit to train for and participate in an endurance event.
As a Britton Fund Ride volunteer, you will receive no compensation from The Britton Fund, Inc. In fact, you will be asked to raise funds for The Britton Fund, Inc. and to help defray the costs of the Ride. The event has a fundraising minimum connected with it. If you raise the minimum level of funds for the event, you will be eligible to have your expenses of participating in the event paid by The Britton Fund, Inc, including a jersey, dinner the evening before the ride, breakfast and lunch the day of and ride support during the event. In light of this, we take your commitment to raise the fundraising minimum seriously. We want all Ride participants to be successful in raising at least the minimum and have structured the program to provide the support to help you reach your fundraising goal.
FUNDRAISING MINIMUM – The fundraising minimum is $600.00. The minimum is set to ensure we keep our event costs low, maintaining our credibility with all our donors and most important, maximizing the funds we are able to invest in our mission to provide funding for research and education to benefit the field of arboriculture and urban forestry with emphasis on issues inherent to the geographic area of California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii.
Registration fee is 125.00 and includes a jersey, dinner the evening before the ride, breakfast and lunch the day of and ride support during the event. Due to the short organizational timeline this year, jerseys may not be available on the ride day.
Due to Covid protocols, lodging is on your own. A list of hotels is available on the Tour of the Unknown Coast website - https://tuccycle.org/where _to_stay
