Kroger, Elevate present Cycling Event for adults, kids to benefit hungry children
Although the first Fort Worth fundraising bicycle ride benefiting hungry children was canceled last year due to severe weather, over $130,000 was raised to benefit Tarrant Area Food Bank feeding programs for children.
RIDE FOR KIDS—GEAR UP TO END CHILDHOOD HUNGER comes back in 2014 led once again by Honorary Chair and Lead Rider Mayor Betsy Price. Set for Saturday, Oct. 25, between 8 a.m. and 12 noon, three different distance rallies for adults and children will begin and end in Sundance Square Plaza at Main St. between Third and Fourth Streets, Fort Worth 76102. Strollers, tricycles and trainers are welcome to cruise around the Plaza on closed streets.
In addition, a “Party on the Plaza” will offer live music by the Como Elementary B-Sharp Orchestra, the McLean Chorus and the Pasticcio Band. Activities for children will include, among others, a game truck, balloon artists, a bike rodeo, family yoga and the Texas Rangers mascot, Captain, and Texas Rangers player Vernon Wells pitching softballs to kids. The fee for the Party on the Plaza is $15 in advance ($25 the day of the ride) per child or single adult and free for parents and for children age two and younger.
