Ride for ALICE
Aug 5 all-day

Join us Saturday, August 5, 2017, for a scenic ride (route to be finalized soon). Enjoy free coffee from Longboard Coffee Co. before heading out and then return to Coeur d’Alene for lunch and prize drawings. Each registered participant will receive a commemorative gift!

Funds raised will help low income families by improving the accessibility and quality of affordable child care. Our ALICE project uncovered the fact that child care is the most expensive item on a family of four’s monthly budget. Low income families are frequenly forced to choose sub-standard or unlicensed care for their children. Help us raise awareness and funds for ALICE families in our community and enjoy a great ride at the same time!

The first (hopefully annual) ride for ALICE will consist of a morning meet-up and ride followed by lunch with prize drawings. Check back for more details and information! If you’re interested in helping plan the ride, contact Mark Tucker at 208.667.8112. Sponsorships are needed!
