Registration for this year's RATPOD ride is just around the corner...Tuesday, March 3 at 8 am (Mnt time). So mark your calendar, set your alarm and jump on line early to claim your spot. There is a rider limit of 650. This one day,130-mile bicycle event is Camp's largest annual fundraiser. It's fun, it's beautiful, and it's for a great cause! Hope to see you there!
If you attempt to register and do not make the 650 rider cut-off, DO sign up for the waiting list. Historically, those who do have ultimately gotten to ride.
It's almost time for registration for RATPOD 2015. The ride is set for Saturday, June 27; general online registration opens on Tuesday, March 3 at 8 am (mtn time). For riders from 2014 who raised $1,000 or more, you have earned the opportunity to pre-register in advance between mid-January and mid-February. You should be receiving an email from us soon with details.
We hope to see you in Dillon this summer!
Most everyone who has participated in RATPOD (and many who have made contributions to it) is probably familiar with the name David Sobba. David has been riding in and raising money for Camp Mak-A-Dream through this event since 2004 - the same year he was diagnosed with cancer. His passion for this cause, his dedication to raising money and spreading the word was tremendous to say the least. David's name appears on the RATPOD top fundraiser trophy now 7 times, most recently for his efforts in raising over $28,000 in 2012 alone!
Sadly we lost David on January 22, 2013. In his honor, numerous members of 'Team Sobba' who have ridden and supported David's efforts in past years, will ride again this year on June 29 to honor him and all he was to so many of us. David even has a fundraising page for THIS YEAR's event for anyone who would like to make a donation to RATPOD/Camp Mak-A-Dream in his name: https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/davidsobba/ratpod-2013.
In his honor, the RATPOD trophy will be officially renamed in David's name and his name will also appear on this year's jerseys. David, you will continue to be with us both at RATPOD and at Camp this year and long into the future!
