On Memorial Day Weekend our community of athletes will [remotely] unite for Rebecca’s Giddy Up Challenge to benefit the COVID-19 relief fund via the Be Good™ Foundation. With elevation gain goals ranging from the "Baked Potato" of 5,295-feet to my goal of the "Queen's Everest" of 29,029-feet of elevation gain (the equivalent of Mount Everest), together we'll all use our bicycles (or running shoes. ouch.) as catalysts for empowerment and evolution.
My registration fees and all additional fundraising will go to our beneficiaries providing bikes for frontline healthcare workers, cycling infrastructure for transportation and supporting research for a COVID-19 vaccine.
You can also purchase a "GIDDY UP" t-shirt from Pine Print Shop and $10 of each shirt will go to the fundraiser. http://pineprintshop.com/cds/be-good
Thank you for your donations and/or your encouragement.
Rebecca's Giddy Up Challenge
On Memorial Day Weekend our community will unite for a special Rebecca’s Giddy Up Challenge that benefits COVID-19 relief via the Be Good™ Foundation. Together we will use our bicycles (or running shoes) as a catalyst for healing, empowerment and evolution. Registration fees and additional fundraising will go to our beneficiaries providing bikes for frontline healthcare workers, cycling infrastructure for transportation and to support research for a COVID-19 vaccine.
Participants can ride or run (outdoors or indoors) the elevation of one of 4 climbing challenges. We will use a Strava Club as the leaderboard.
Starting Friday, May 22nd 12:01am MST to Monday, May 25th 11:59pm MST Rebecca Rusch will set out to ride multiple laps on the infamous RPI Trail Creek hill climb with the goal of climbing the equivalent elevation of Mount Everest (29,092’) in a single day. This type of challenge is called “Everesting” and it’s incredibly difficult. Join Rebecca wherever you are! Choose your distance and your discipline and Giddy Up! Together we’ll motivate each other and pedal/run for purpose.
Prizing: Awards will be presented to top female and male finishers in each category and in each discipline, along with the top 3 fundraisers.
