Ride for Heather

Please join Team Fond du Lac/Oshkosh Cyclery for a fundraising ride on Sunday, August 31, 2008 in the Fond du Lac area. The goal of the ride is to raise funds to help Heather and Joe Shanahan with their mounting medical expenses as they battle Heather’s recurrent non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Heather, a Ripon native, is 30 and undergoing stem-cell transplant treatment in August.

Rain or shine, rides will include a 5-mile and 15-mile bicycle path ride for kids and casual recreation riders. There will also be a 30-mile ride and a 62-mile ride on the back roads of scenic eastern Fond du Lac County. Expect scenic, rolling terrain. Sag support will be provided for the three longer rides.

A spaghetti lunch will be provided at the Taycheedah Town Hall (just off the HWY 151 N wayside) about two miles north of Fond du following the rides. Great prizes, including a Trek T1 fixed-gear bike, will be awarded to the rider collecting and turning in the greatest dollar amount of pledges.
