Give Hope Ride @ Olio Fields
May 27 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
Give Hope Ride @ Olio Fields | Fishers | Indiana | United States

What started as a group of friends riding bikes has grown into an annual fundraising event that now benefits the Fishers Y Annual Campaign. This Memorial Day cycling event offers four routes from 10 to 63 miles throughout Hamilton County to suit all experience levels. Cycling groups, Scouts, students, and families are welcome!

The Give Hope Ride offers four varied routes (10, 20, 44, and 63 miles) throughout Hamilton County to accommodate all riders.  The first community Give Hope Ride in 2013 was the culmination of four previous Memorial Day bike rides hosted by Fishers residents, John and Peg Wright. The Wrights hosted their first bike ride out of their home in 2009.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Fishers YMCA Annual Campaign to help others to lead healthy lives regardless of their ability to pay.
