Paso’s Pink Moto Ride to benefit Cancer Support Community
Full day of fun, food, music & more to raise funds for cancer patients & their families
Get ready to get your pink on Paso Robles. The first Annual Paso’s Pink Moto Ride is coming to town Oct. 25 and this is one ride you don’t want to miss. This is no ordinary ride – organized with the intent to raise funds and awareness for The Cancer Support Community California Central Coast, Pink Moto promises a full day of fun, food, music, prizes and more.
“This event is the vision of our Cancer Support Community supporters, Rich and Tracy Secchiaroli,” said CSCCCC Executive Director Christie Kelly. “It will be a fun day for everyone and, most importantly, it will help us raise much-needed funds for cancer patients and their families.”
Meet in Parkfield!
The ride will have participants meeting up at the Parkfield Café around 7 a.m. where they will munch down on pink pancakes and pose for group photos before heading out for a 40-mile or so ride along the back roads leading to Barrelhouse Brewery in Paso Robles. The cost – $50 per rider or $75 per couple – includes breakfast, an event T-shirt, after-party barbecue eats and beer, chances to win prizes, great music and so much more.
For those interested in adding a bit of friendly competition to the day, a fun, optional challenge has been issued: Set a goal to raise a specific dollar amount, and then ask friends, family, co-workers, and just about anyone you know to pledge dollars for your Pink Moto Ride miles. Want to make it a group effort? Have your group register for the ride, set a goal, and allow supporters to issue a challenge – how about $50 if riders wear a pink tutu or add pink décor to their bikes?
“We encourage everyone to have fun with this,” said Kelly. “Get creative and surprise us!”
Party after the ride
Following the Pink Moto Ride, participants will enjoy an after-ride barbecue and party, with music from Route 66 and Second Class Citizens, from 1-5 p.m. at Barrelhouse. Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories including most funds raised and most outrageous pink outfit.
“All profits from the event will be used to support local cancer patients and their loved ones currently battling cancer, especially breast cancer patients, which is the largest population we see,” said Kelly. “No one should face cancer alone – and that is the main focus of this Pink Moto Ride.”
