Gold Glow Childhood Cancer Fundraiser

Date

10/27/21 8:00pm to 10/31/21 12:00pm

Log in your miles to help fight Childhood Cancer.

We are sending this out in hopes that NEMBA members can assist with a great cause which is raising awareness for Childhood Cancer – Gold Glow (Milton, MA) is a charity event and while they have raised plenty of money, they have really fallen short on hitting their goal of walk/ride/run miles. This is where we hope NEMBA members can assist, even though we are at the end of the fundraiser! If everyone can log their miles starting from October 1st and through the end of the month, I think we may be able to achieve the Glow Gold goal of 15,590 miles (one mile for every child diagnosed with cancer each year). If anyone can achieve this, it is NEMBA members!

If interested, please follow instructions below (there is NO cost to join using discount code “NEMBA”) and no expectation of donations – we just need your miles:

1. Follow this link to join the NEMBA team - Run/Walk/Ride to Glow Gold - New England Mountain Bike Association (NEMBA) (onecause.com)

2. Scroll down and click “Join Team”

3. Sign up using whatever method is easiest, Facebook, Google, Twitter, or email

4. Fill in information necessary – MAKE SURE to enter “NEMBA” under the “Do you have a discount code”

5. Next check off the “Register for Glow Gold” option – there is no charge when using the discount code "NEMBA" – then follow instructions.

6. Finish registration and go to “set up my page”

7. Click on “Run/Walk/Ride”

8. Easiest way to enter your miles-to-date is adding up all miles ridden in October and doing (1) lump sum entry for that amount and title is something like “retroactive miles to-date Ocober”

9. You can then link your Strava and miles will be automatically updated for each of your rides (note that this will not track past rides, hence the lump sum entry.
