Happy New Year! 2013 is already shaping up to be another busy year for SVEF! Work is already beginning on the 11th Annual Mountain Charlie Challenge. This year we’ll continue with our 50K, 100K and 100 Mile rides, but we’ll also be adding a guided family ride (approximately 12 miles) and will even have loaner bikes for those riders who don’t have one. Sign up (Active.com, search for Mountain Charlie Challenge) early to take advantage of the limited loaner bikes. The day of the ride will be a daylong festival, with hands-on activities, bike events, music, food and drink, as well as local artisans and exhibits from our many sponsors. If you are interested in a sponsorship opportunity, please email [email protected]
The Mountain Charlie is a big event and we are looking for volunteers to help with the planning. We have lots of jobs, large and small, that can be completed from home and in whatever spare time you have. Please contact [email protected] for more information, or visit out site to see the list of jobs.
SVEF is also kicking off its brand new Community Partner Program (replacing the Business Partner Program). Our website outlines all the benefits of joining the program. Our goal is to help local businesses by aggressively promoting their ongoing support of SVEF. You’ll see our new banners highlighting our Platinum Sponsors hanging around town. Just click on “Community Partners” on our home page (svef.net).
It’s not too late to donate to the Foundation in our bi-annual Ask campaign. Simply visit our site to make a secure, tax-deductible donation or simply mail your check to SVEF, 245 Mt. Hermon Rd. Suite M #150, Scotts Valley, CA 95066.
