The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2017

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Oct 31, 2017

On September 23, 2017, The Center in Asbury Park will host its 2nd annual AIDS Bike Ride fundraiser.  The Bike Ride starts and finishes at The Center in Asbury Park.  Enjoy beautiful coastal views on flat terrain with cyclists of all ages and riding abilities to support The Center in Asbury Park.  This 25 mile ride travels through the iconic seaside towns of Asbury Park, Loch Arbour, Allenhurst, Deal, Long Branch, Monmouth Beach, and Oceanport. SAG (Support And Gear) vehicles will accompany and assist the riders and crew while on the route. 


We encourage each rider to raise a minimum amount of $100. The Center is conducting a fundraising campaign reaching out to 20,000+ homes using direct mail marketing, various social media sites, ads in local publications and online newspapers, and e-mail blasts through The Center website, The Asbury Park Chamber of Commerce, and The Belmar Chamber of Commerce.
