Greater Philly Chapter Riders!
We are so excited about our Ride
to Defeat ALS on Saturday, June 17th. We want you to join us- ride with
family & friends and make a huge difference for those with ALS. Please take
a moment to see some great additions/updates we have added from previous years.
We are working hard to enhance an already fun family ride so can we raise both
awareness and funding to cure this devastating disease.
We have partnered with ACT Sports Management to ensure a great ride experience.
They are working with:
• Course design and routing.
• EMS contact and arrangements
• Signage plan and production.
• Course marshals, volunteer, and staffing plan design and execution.
• SAG and trail vehicle
• Coordination rest stops to refuel and re-energize for the next portion of
• Coordination of starting points to send the riders off safely
Morey’s Piers has upgraded their sponsorship for the Ride. Every rider will get
two tickets at the finish line, which can be redeemed either Saturday (6/17) or
Sunday (6/18). The option is yours, cool down Saturday after the long ride or
bring the family on Sunday. Tickets provide access to all the Morey’s Piers
Amusement and Water Parks. Plus! Dad rides and slides FREE on Father’s Day!

Enjoy all that Ride to Defeat ALS has to offer without riding. If you cannot be
at the ride or you are unable to participate, you can still join the movement
towards a world free of ALS by fundraising through our online Virtual Rider Program.
Virtual Riders can be members of teams, participate in fundraising contests and
become Top Fundraisers. Virtual Riders can also create a personal fundraising
web page and have access to all of our online fundraising tools. The
registration fee for all Virtual Riders is a reduced rate of $25 as there are
costs associated with the event for all participants. Please note, Virtual
Riders will not receive the mandatory day-of-event rider materials. If you
raise the $125 virtual rider minimum, you’ll get the same benefits as a rider,
including an event t-shirt, 2 Morey’s Passes, lunch on Ride Day and you’re
eligible for rider incentives! Also, the top VR fundraiser will receive 2
tickets for the Phillies Rooftop Celebration in the spring of 2018.
