Camp has an exciting opportunity and we need your help to make it happen! John Sobba, brother of the late David Sobba, top fundraiser in Camp's RATPOD event, is vying for one of seven coveted spots in the Hawaii Ironman this fall and with enough votes, will be allowed to help promote Camp Mak-A-Dream at the event! We appreciate your vote and you sharing this link with as many folks as you can!
The deadline for partial refunds for cancellations is quickly approaching, so if your plans have changed for any reason and you no longer plan to join us for RATPOD on Saturday, June 29, please contact us ASAP. Cancellations on or prior to Monday, April 22 are eligible for a $50 refund - and we do have a long waiting list so we appreciate you letting us know. We will fill open spots by contacting folks on the Waiting List in order of sign up. You can reach us by phone at (406)549-5987.
Also, if you are riding and have not yet set up your online fundraising page through FirstGiving, do so today - it's quick and easy! We also have lots of great prizes for riders who bring in the most in donations.
We have now filled both the registration and waiting lists. Thanks for your interest in RATPOD and please consider participating in this event next year.
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!
We'd like to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to the talented folks who made both the incredible new video and beautiful photography on this new site possible. They've all donated their time and footage to us and we can't thank them enough. Please check out their other work as well!
