12th Annual Bike/Walk-a-thon in memory of Ken Oliver will be held on Saturday July 27.
This is a very important fundraising event for Nashoba Learning Group and always a wonderful time for all who participate. The bike-a-thon is a tradition at NLG.
For the bike ride, we ask each bike rider to gain a minimum of $500 in sponsorships, there is no minimum for the walk-a-thon- we just ask everyone to raise as much as they can.
We have 2 distance options for the bike ride. Option 1 is 50 miles of gently rolling (some would say hilly in parts) road riding, beginning and ending at our house in Concord. Option 2 is a 25 mile ride that leaves out most of the highest hills. Both rides begin registration at 7:30 am and roll out at 8:30.
The walk-a-thon begins at noon with groups setting off anytime between noon and 2 p.m. and is a wonderful walk through the woods to Walden Pond on a marked trail, total distance about 2 miles. There is an option to go around the Pond to add 2 more miles. Many students and their families participate in the walk. We encourage families to get as many sponsors as possible. Refreshments and a swimming pool are available for before and after you go.
