The Oreo Roubaix Gravel Ride 11/4/2018

The Mission:

With your help, the Casey Saunders Foundation (The Foundation) provides financial help to youth interested in cycling, camping and other outdoor activities. For example, The Foundation will provide a bike to a child to ride and a mentor to help teach that child how humility and hard work are always worth it. For other youth, it provides them with a camp scholarship where they learn the power of nature to quiet the soul and clear the mind. The Casey Saunders Foundation helps youth learn about who they are and how to become kind, helpful members of our community.

All proceeds from The Oreo Roubaix go to the Casey Saunders Foundation.
