UHCCF Bridges of Hope Ride

UHCCF Inaugural 2019 Bridges of Hope Ride, presented by KELLY Benefit Strategies

Join the inaugural UnitedHealthcare Childrens Foundation (UHCCF) Bridges of Hope Ride presented by KELLY Benefit Strategies on Saturday September 21, 2019. The ride will start and end at KELLY Benefit Strategies headquarters in Sparks, Maryland. Riders will have the option of choosing the 100 kilometer (62.5miles) course or the 50 kilometers (31 miles) course. 

These riders will be supported by Rally UHC Cycling athletes, team cars and staff, and will be gently led by several of the teams pro riders.  We will roll through beautiful Northern Baltimore County farm and horse country, and travel across multiple bridges, over rolling streams and along country roads. At the end of the ride, participants will celebrate their accomplishments as cyclists and fundraisers at a post-race party with delicious food, cold drinks and live music!

Each cyclist is kindly asked to donate or raise a minimum of $500, in support of the UHCCF mission to help children with their medical expenses. All event proceeds will help fund UHCCF medical grants awarded to children in the Northeast Region. As a donor, you will be a Bridge of Hope for families struggling with the cost of healthcare for their children.

Those who donate or raise $1,000 or more will be invited to join us for a special event and dinner at KELLY Benefit Strategies headquarters on Friday evening, September 20th. This will be a smaller group gathering with the opportunity to mingle with RALLY | UHC pro riders, staff, UHC executives and fellow riders.
