ONE GOAL: end cancer
Team GBQ is once again excited to participate in Pelotonia, and is reaching out to clients and friends of the firm to see if you are interested in riding, or donating to the cause. Like many teams, Team GBQ has more than doubled for Pelotonia12 (already 14 riders registered). However, this year’s team is made up of more than just firm employees. Whether you’re already registered and need a team, or you’re still planning on taking part and have yet to sign up, Team GBQ has plenty of room. Please contact team captain Judd Ballard by Friday July 20th, 2012 if you’re interested at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614.947.5207.
This year’s ride is on August 11, 2012, departing from Columbus Commons and headed to Kenyon College in Gambier, OH. The new route is set up to be much less difficult for the novice rider. The 25-mile stop and 75-mile start are in Pickerington. The rest of the race is headed straight north along the western Licking County line, through New Albany, Johnstown and into Knox County.
With less than a month to go until the ride, there are almost 6,000 registered riders, and over $5million raised. Thanks to the large corporate sponsors, 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center.
