Help us meet our fundraising goal of $30,000!
Your participation in OCU’s Peace Ride helps us bring peace to our communities by pedaling for it – TOGETHER!
Creating your campaign:
Once you complete the Registration , you’ll automatically be directed to our Crowdrise page, where you can begin your fundraising campaign. But first, learn more here!
Get your friends to register:
Helping us increase the number of people who participate in the Peace Ride is just as important as the money we raise to support those efforts. Riding with a group of friends will allow you to collectively push further and farther on the trail than you thought possible. A team of supporters will translate into a greater number of pedals for peace. Call and text your friends and make this a day that all of you can plan to hang out together!
Setting a goal:
1. Set a goal to raise $10 per mile you ride. If you decide to ride 18 miles, your goal would be $180. If you decide to ride 54 miles, your goal would be $540.
2. Set a goal to have your total number of contributors match the total number of miles you ride. If you decide to ride 18 miles, you would aim to have 18 different people contribute to the cause. If you decide to ride 54 miles, you would aim to have 54 different people contribute to the cause.
3. Create a flat goal such as $250 for your ride. Then tap into your networks. Text and call your family/ friends/ colleagues and see if they will support and donate to you through your Crowdrise page.
The longer you ride, the more you can raise:
Regardless of the type of goal you decide to pursue, the amount of money you are able to raise will increase as the number of miles you ride increases. If the furthest you’ve rode is 10 miles, challenge yourself to complete 18 miles. If the furthest you’ve rode is 50 miles, challenge yourself to complete 72 miles. If you are willing to challenge yourself and ride further than you ever have before, you will have the support of your donor network, friends, and family.
This is a Community Effort:
As we ask for your help, please know that we will be by your side as you establish a fundraising goal, build momentum with your first donation, and push beyond your fundraising goal as the Peace Ride approaches. You can count on us to provide you with motivation and assistance from the day you first register to the moment you complete your last stroke of the pedal at the Peace Ride.
Ask your employer or business to match the amount you are able to raise from your personal network. Also, you can ask your employer or business to become a community partner for the ride itself!
