The Barrington LIONS Club collaborated with A RIDE For 3 Reasons on July 3 to help sponsor ROCK the RIDE at the Barrington 4th of July Brats Tent. This event drew well over 1,000 participants and was supported by close to 100 volunteers. All net proceeds were donated to A RIDE For 3 Reasons. On Monday night Lion Brian Cecola (left) and President Bill Lee (right) presented a check for $6,100 to Bob Lee and Jan Gierlach. Because of a triple matching PaceSetter Fund this contribution will turn into a $18,300 donation and will be split equally between 3 charities.
Jan Gierlach told the group that his college applications are in the mail, he will be graduating early from Barrington High School this December and will embark on a 3,300 solo self-supported fundraising bike ride from San Diego to Saint Augustine, Fl on February 7th. You will be able to follow his journey here. Jan extended his appreciation to everyone for their support, both at ROCK the RIDE and his upcoming bike ride.
The goal of A RIDE For 3 Reasons is to raise at least $600,000. 100% of which will go to the 3 charities. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated! Donate here.
