Registration for this year's RATPOD ride is just around the corner...Tuesday, March 3 at 8 am (Mnt time). Rider limit is 650. Log on to www.ratpod.org and select the 'REGISTRATION' page under 'THE RIDE.' The ride will take place on SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 2015.
If you attempt to register and do not make the 650 rider cut-off, sign up for the WAITING LIST. Historically, those who do have ultimately gotten to ride.
Below is a sketch of the 2015 RATPOD jersey. You may purchase one for $70 during online registration, at the event or earn one for FREE by raising $500 or more in donations.
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!
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!
