The Ox Gravel Fondo

June 8 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This is a Gravel race and ride for racers, riders and families starting and ending in Oxford, Mi. The race is approximately 80 and 36 miles through some of the most beautiful dirt roads in Southeast Michigan. The ride will follow the same 36 mile course as the race and we offer a Metric Century Option and a shorter 15 mile route option. All proceeds will benefit The Chooch Foundation and Free Bikes 4 Kidz Detroit.

The Chooch Foundation is a nonprofit organization created in honor of Justin Charles Shilling who was one of the victims of the Oxford High School Shooting. CHOOCH stands for, “Caring and Helping Others Often Creates Hope” also, Chooch was Justin’s nickname as a child. The Shilling family started The Chooch Foundation to honor Justin’s kind nature; he was known for being kind to others.

Our organization has a variety of goals. Long term we aspire to create the Chooch Center for Mindfulness, a community center that would provide mental health resources, education and services to anyone who asks. Our mission is to raise awareness of mental health, especially in children and young adults.

We have begun our work through activities such as the Coaches Care Initiative. A program that educates coaches on how to get students/athletes to open up and most importantly provide them with the information on how and where they can get help. We hold weekly Mindfulness meet ups on-line that provide an opportunity to learn meditation that helps one reduce stress and enjoy life a little better.

Finally, because we want to continue the way Justin lived his life, we are committed to making those that are less fortunate live a better life. A percentage of all of our proceeds from each event we hold is donated to a charity that is associated with helping the less fortunate or by providing a student scholarship.
