Paso’s Pink Moto Ride to benefit Cancer Support Community
Participants will enjoy fun, food, music and more on October 3 while raising funds for local cancer patients & their families
– The Second Annual Paso’s Pink Moto Ride is coming to town Oct. 3 and it’s no ordinary ride. This “Bay to Barrel” event is organized with the intent to raise funds and awareness for The Cancer Support Community California Central Coast. And if last year’s highly-successful inaugural event is any indication, the 2015 Pink Moto Ride promises a full day of fun, food, music, prizes and more.
“This event has grown out of the vision Rich and Tracy Secchiaroli,” said CSCCCC Executive Director Christie Kelly. “The Paso Pink Moto Ride is definitely the place to be on October 3 if you are looking for a great ride, great food and great beer and, of course, a great cause. 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 Morro Bay!
This year’s ride, “From the Bay to the Barrel,” has participants meeting up at the Morro Bay Veterans Hall for registration, pink pancakes, and a group photo before heading out for 45 miles or so of back-road bliss to the Barrelhouse Brewery in Paso Robles. The cost – $50 per rider or $75 per couple – includes breakfast, an event T-shirt and goodie bag, after-party barbecue eats and beer, prizes, great music and more.
“At the end of the ride, Barrelhouse owners Jason and Chris will be hosting a Pink Block Party in our honor,” said Kelly. “It will feature live music by Captain Nasty, a delicious barbecue meal provide by San Luis BBQ, and a special Barrelhouse Pink Brew to help raise funds and awareness for the Cancer Support Community.”
For those interested in adding a bit of friendly competition to the day, a challenge has been issued: Set a goal to raise a specific dollar amount, and then ask friends, family, co-workers, and others to pledge dollars for Pink Moto Ride miles. Want to make it a group effort? Groups and riding clubs are encouraged to register, set a goal, and allow supporters to issue a challenge – how about $50 if riders wear a pink tutu or paint their bikes pink?
“We encourage everyone to have fun with this,” said Kelly. “Get creative and surprise us!”
Sponsorship opportunities available
For those individuals and businesses interested in sponsoring Paso’s Pink Moto Ride, various sponsorship opportunities are still available. In addition, there are chances to have signs created and lend support including company ride signs and “in memory of” ride signs.
“There is still plenty of time to become a sponsor, register to ride, and put your fundraising team together,” said Kelly. “Last year we were able to raise over $50,000 and this year we plan on doubling that amount. Motorcycle folks are always looking for a great cause and a great ride – and we hit all the marks!”
