An Opportunity to Do a Good Turn for Special Olympics

Law Enforcement Torch Run® is creating a new cycling event to raise money for Special Olympics Montana. We could use your help!

WHAT
Pedal for the Medal is a fundraising event that features 25, 50 & 100-mile bicycle routes along the Missouri River and Smith River basin outside of Great Falls. This is a fully supported event, meaning we provide rest stops, bicycle mechanics, motorcycle escorts, road signs for safety, lots of food and drinks, and a celebration BBQ at the Finish.

FOR WHOM
Special Olympics Montana touches the lives of over 2,000 intellectually disabled athletes and their families. SOMT boasts over 40 years of empowering and celebrating the achievements of people who often battle discrimination and exclusion in our communities. P4M will continue Special Olympics Montana’s tradition of inclusive community fundraising for this noble mission.

WHEN
September 10, 2011
7:00 am until 2:00pm

WHERE
Leaving from the Town Pump on Gore Hill, the ride will provide rest stops at Ulm, Cascade, Wolf Creek and Eden Bridge.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY
We are looking for volunteer groups that will adopt a rest stop for the ride. We will provide food and beverages, banners, tables, chairs and signs. We need volunteers to set up the sites, put out food and drink for riders, and generally keep the rest area clean and welcoming. We’ll set up rest stops by 7:00 am on September 10th and take them down no later than 1:00pm.
