The Second Summer Bike Event is an incredible fundraiser that helps local area Non-Profits raise money and awareness for our various causes. Riding our bicycles throughout Cape Cod on a beautiful Fall day is a welcomed opportunity to do just that. Through hard work and determination, our team will preservere through a challenging course to the finish line. It is nothing compared to the hard work and determination that our Champ Homes participants must grind through to better their situations. Together, we provide opportunities and change lives.
