Welcome to Ruff Ride Pittsburgh: 24-Hour Spin Relay!

Ruff Ride challenges teams to tackle a 24-hour spin event. On September 24, 2021 we will take over Schenley Plaza in the heart of South Oakland. All proceeds go to fund service dogs for injured Veterans.

Why We Ride: Team Foster raises money to provide trained service dogs at no cost to Veterans, including those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Service dogs change the lives of veterans by providing the physical support and performing complex tasks enabling the veteran to heal.

Inspiration: Team Foster honors the spirit and sacrifice of Captain Erick Foster who was killed while engaging enemy; forces in 2007 in Iraq.  Erick comissioned from Pittsburgh Army ROTC program, where he honed his skills as a soldier and a leader.  He pushed himself and those around him to be better – to go a little farther, to give a little more.  And that’s what Team Foster does.  We go a little farther, we give a little more to support the service men and women who kept us safe.

We want YOU to go a little farther and give a little more. Welcome to the Team...
