WHAT IS MITZVAHCYCLE 2022? ( Hint: It is not just a cycling event)
MitzvahCycle 2022 is a sporting event that anyone can participate in. Participants can either ride, run or walk to support patients and their loved ones in the Jewish community. There will also be music, food and family- friendly fun activities at the recreation center.
You can participate as an individual or as part of a team. Each participant will register individually for $36.00 and then set a fundraising goal (minimum of $180). Participants can form teams and set a team goal that all team members can work towards raising together. Participants aged sixteen and under who are joining an adult family member do not have to create their own fundraising goal or page. They only pay the youth registration fee of $18.00

TELL ME ABOUT THIS EVENT
As soon as you register, you will become part of the BCGW's MitzvahCycle community.
We will be in touch with information that will help you meet every metric of success.
Leading up to the event, we will send you opportunities to learn more about BCGW' work, as well as get coaching tips for training and fundraising.
Don't worry! We won't send you lots of stuff that will end up in a landfill. Instead, we will send you information on how you can volunteer and create meaningful opportunities while you train for the event.
We WILL give you a cool MitzvahCycle T. Shirt when you hit your fundraising goal.
Ride Day: When you arrive at the Argyle Recreation Center, you will be greeted by our volunteers who will
direct you to the start line for your event.
We will have staggered start times so everyone has space to ride, walk and run at their own pace. Volunteers will lead off each route.
Encouragement, water and snacks will be provided free of charge along the way.
You will finish your route back at the Argyle Center where you will be celebrated in a festive atmosphere.
