     THIS IS A FUNDRAISING EVENT AND WE WILL MAKE IT EASY WITH CROWDRISE , Support, and Rewards

Bike from the base of the San Juan Mountains in historic Telluride to the desert outpost of Gateway. The Grand Fondo is fully supported and
includes a celebratory finish with a feed and live music at the luxury Gateway Canyons Resort. Join us and experience the most beautiful and
diverse scenery you will find on a Grand Fondo ride! This is the annual fundraiser for the Just For Kids Foundation to support youth programs
and college scholarships in the San Miguel Watershed. www.justforkids.org www.m2dbikeride.com

For every $250 raised for the Just For Kids Foundation, fundraisers will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win many amazing prizes and receive a free t-shirt (the more $ you raise, the more raffle tickets you receive for a chance to win)! This year's grand prize is a $4,500 credit with BootDoctors in Telluride for a Specialized Road Bike. Individuals that fundraise the most money for the Just For Kids Foundation will be awarded top secret gifts at the awards ceremony. We hope you will consider helping us fundraise this year and a big thanks from the Just For Kids Foundation!! Donations and Sponsorships for the Grand Fondo will be availabe thru Crowdrise.

Each year, the Mountains to the Desert Bike Ride serves as the single fundraising event for the Just For Kids Foundation. We encourage you to help by fundraising this year! Every dollar raised through participant fundraising before and during the ride is matched dollar for dollar by the Carstens Family Fund at the Denver Foundation. That money is then awarded to individuals and organizations that provide leadership opportunities for regional youth as well as organizations that promote self-sufficiency and responsibility. Over the past ten years, the Just For Kids Foundation is proud to have raised over $2 Million; all of which has been awarded to hundreds of organizations benefitting thousands of underprivileged children. Help us meet our goal of raising over $100,000 for youth in the San Miguel Watershed this year!

We Will Be Finishing at the Gateway Canyon Resort!
