This 32nd anniversary event will start and end at the Windham Community Center in Willimantic. You can also ride or walk virtually, starting and finishing when and where you want. Every dollar raised equals $2 thanks to the Jeffrey P. Ossen Family Foundation.
Proceeds benefits three critical Windham County human services agencies: the Windham Region No Freeze Project that assists people experiencing homelessness, Perception Programs that offers a path to recovery for people dealing with addiction and mental illness, and Windham Area Interfaith Ministry that provides basic needs from clothing to heat for under-resourced individuals and families.
So choose one of our traditional cycling routes or plan a route of your own wherever you are. Please raise money through pledges and bring friends along to share your ride. Those who can’r cycle or walk can consider simply donating.
