WAM 300 Charity Bike Ride – Time to Sign Up.

March 18, 2015

Every year Team O2/Cadieux Bicycle Club are well represented at the Make A Wish – Wish a Mile 300 mile charity bike ride from Traverse City to Michigan International Speedway. This year we should have an even bigger representation than ever.

Not only is this a great opportunity to spend some time on your bike but doing it for a great cause. We cycle as part of Team Alex, which has become more of a family than a team. The team rides in memory of Alex Graham, an incredible young lady whose life, and death, has inspired many to do good deeds and to try to participate in acts of loving kindness.

If you have any concerns over how to raise the sponsorship money please reach out to Beth Brandvain (Team Alex Captain), Ron Sollish or James Hill for help.

We are here to make this easy and look forward to you joining the Team Alex family.
