2015 Alzheimer's Foundation Tri Run Ride

On Saturday, July 18, MA HOBY helped the Alzheimer’s Foundation with their annual Tri Run Ride fundraising event. We spent most of the day at the finish line using bells and noise makers to aid us in cheering the cyclists as they finished the course. It was a bit breezy so we also held up the balloon arch so that the cyclists could ride under it. Plus, we recorded the bib numbers of the cyclists as they crossed the finish line. It was so rewarding to see the big smiles on their faces! Some of the cyclists returned to our station to take pictures to record the moment. After all cyclists were accounted for, we helped with the cleanup which included cleaning all of the coolers. In appreciation of our help, the organizers donated several snacks and water bottles to MA HOBY for use at our program events. Autumn Hotaling, event chair, had this to say “We are SO grateful for your continued dedication to the RIDE and are so grateful to have such amazing volunteers to help welcome back our cyclists! I can't thank you all enough for the group’s hard work that afternoon, it really made such a difference unpacking this morning after the event.”
