"At noon on Thursday, June 3, our team of eight riders will begin a simulated 3,000 miles ride on Computrainers in the store window of JackRabbit Sports' Union Square location. We'll ride 24/7 for a week or so, until we complete the task.
This year there are a few changes. First and foremost, the event will benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation. CAF does great work to help people with physical disabilities pursue an active lifestyle through physical fitness and competitive athletics.
Don't forget to follow our progress on Facebook
and Twitter .
We'll post updates on the ride as well as raffles, discounts for donors
at JackRabbit, and other incentives.
When my mother passed away in 2007, I decided to hold a charitable event in her memory every year. In 2008 we did an event to support Locks of Love, and last year it was the Young Survival Coalition. This year, we're reviving last year's format and doing the 2nd edition of the Race Across the Window. As was the case last year, our team of eight riders will ride a simulated 3,000 miles on Computrainers in the store window of JackRabbit Sports' Union Square location. We'll ride 24/7 for a week or so, until we complete the task.
Plus, this year will be bigger and better. We'll have a second Computrainer set up this time around to accommodate guest riders, celebrities, and CAF athletes."
