ABOUT THE 2020 ANGELRIDE

Memorial Day Weekend, 2020 will be the 17th Annual AngelRide!

We will gather virtually and participate individually to continue spreading love to the campers!

Let’s continue our good work and support the kids at The Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp, established in 1991 for severely burned children between the ages of 8 – 18, located in Union, CT.

There are many options for AngelRiders of all ages and abilities to get involved. We are welcoming bicyclists and walkers (hey, if you want to run…go for it!) and motorcyclists too!

A safe and exceptional experience for our riders and volunteers has always been our top priority. The traditional AngelRide welcomes many opportunities for people to gather. That will not be possible this spring, so we are switching gears! AngelRide has a FUN way to keep our community together, provide a bit of motivation for training, and encourage a physical challenge – all while staying safe – a PokerRide! A $1,000 donation will be made to the Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp in honor of the person with the best hand!

FRIDAY May 22
 We will gather virtually for an AngelRide Opening Ceremony through the wonders of technology

Memorial Day Weekend
 Pedal, walk (or run) on your own course at your own pace, outdoors or indoors. Challenge yourself! Set a goal that you need to train for! 

Riders will earn a PokerRide card every 12 miles!
 Pedal 36 miles and you will have collected 3 cards! Pedal 60 miles, that’s 5 cards! (Go the distance to collect 5 cards and you can discard 2 cards!) Motorcyclists, we will leave the mileage goals up to you! 

Walkers (and Runners) will earn a PokerRide card every 4 miles.
 Complete 12 miles and you will have collected 3 cards! Complete 20 miles, that’s 5 cards! (Go the distance to collect 5 cards and you can discard 2 cards!)

We will pair you up all participants with an AngelRide volunteer via cell phones, respecting the need for physical distancing. When you complete each leg of your route, simply text a selfie to your assigned AngelRide volunteer and they will deal you a card! 

Remember you can complete this year’s personalized AngelRide in 1 day, 2 days or 3 days! 

Monday May 25
 Join in an AngelRide Virtual Closing Ceremony when 2 Community Cards will be revealed to complete everyone’s hand! If you have the best hand, a $1,000 donation will be made in your honor to The Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp!
