Be strong and finish the task!”

The roof is on the STEM Center!
Now we need to “Finish the Task”

Bike to the Lake 2017
The Abbey Resort in Fontana, WI
on the shores of Lake Geneva
Saturday, August 5, 2017
Your participation in Bike to the Lake will go a long way in helping us do just that. In previous years, we have raised between $35,000 – $40,000 for a Kitchen and Dining Hall (2014) and the first 2 phases of the STEM Center (2015/2016). Last year, a donor matched what riders raised so the contribution came to $80,000.
There are several ways you can help us meet our goal this year.
• Register to ride.
• Find sponsors to support you over and above your registration fee.
• Sponsor a rider.
• If you can’t ride, you can be a “virtual rider.”
