Adaptive Bike Giveaway

This year we will be hosting our Adaptive Bike Giveaway Facebook Contest

for Hops for Hope 5K 2020!

 

This will be the first time hosting this contest for Hops for Hope 5K, for the past 8 years we have held this contest for our other annual fundraiser, Everybody Rides. To learn more about our Adaptive Bike Giveaway Contest and how it started click here.

 

We will be giving away a brand new Invacare XLT, Invacare Excelerator or Invacare Excelerator Jr. 

*Final decision on which bike will be decided by Founder Hal Honeyman based on the evaluation of the individual. 

Throughout the last 3 years we have given away an adaptive bike to someone in need at the Awards Ceremony of Hops for Hope 5K. This year we wanted to incorporate the success of our Facebook Contest to the 5K instead of just Everybody Rides. 

All you have to do is tell us why you or someone you know needs an adaptive bike (handcycle only). Then you share your story with your friends and families on Facebook. The person with the most “likes” wins the hand cycle. It's that simple!

Nominate someone in your life with a disability!

The winning person will be presented their handcycle sometime during the week of Hops for Hope 5K (10/3 - 10/11) details coming soon! 

*Winner/all entries MUST be present to accept handcycle

**Social distancing and wearing masks will be mandatory ​
