Great Family Fun Ride on Sunday!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Family Fun Ride on Sunday at Three Creeks Metro Park!  I had a great time, I hope you did too.

Altogether, we raised over $600 for wells in India!

Thanks to all of our sponsors as well!  We really appreciate the contributions of companies like Chipotle, Skreened, Paradise Garage, Melissa Pauquette Photography, Rusty McClure and the Arena Grand Movie Theatre.  I hope everyone is enjoying your prizes!

Thank you to Amanda Gray, LMT, as well for giving massages on Sunday afternoon, and donating all of the money to the Water Cycle Project.  We really appreciate it.

Thank you to Jonathan Youngman and Kelly Young from Franklinton Cycle Works for checking out some bikes, and making the world a better place through safe bicycling!

Last but definitely not least, thanks to all of the volunteers who came out to cook hot dogs, hold raffle jars, sell t-shirts and make our event work!  You guys did an outstanding job, and I was so impressed with everyone.

We’ll post some pictures soon.  We still have some shirts leftover too, so please feel free to order one off of the website, all of that money goes directly to well drilling as well.  Click here to order one.

Family Fun Ride Location Details

Three Creeks is a large park (more than 1,000 acres) with several entrances.

To get to our August 28 Family Fun Ride event, you want the Confluence Trails entrance.  The address is 3860 Bixby Rd., Groveport, OH 43125.

This entrance is on the south side of the park, and is technically the main entrance.  There’s a long driveway off of Bixby Rd. to actually get into the park.

To get there from I-270, get off at Alum Creek Dr. and head south.  Turn left onto Groveport Rd., then take a left onto Bixby Rd.  You’ll find the entrance to the park on your left.

To get there from Rt. 33, get off at Hamilton Rd. and head south.  Turn right onto Bixby Rd., and the entrance will be on your right.

Here’s a map.  If you use your GPS, it might try to make you drive through the park, which is impossible.  See you there!

Thank You Chipotle For The Event Prize

In case you didn’t know, Chipotle is the best restaurant in the world (especially the one on Main St. in Bexley, OH).  So I was super excited when they offered us an event prize for our August 28, 2011 Family Fun Ride at Three Creeks Metro Park.

I didn’t expect them to send us 5 coupons for dinner for 4!  That includes 4 entrees (burritos, bowls, whatever), chips and their awesome guacamole, and drinks for everyone!  That’s like a $35 value… x5.

Looking for a Chipotle near you?  You can check their website at www.Chipotle.com.

Come out on August 28, 2011 for our Family Fun Ride for a chance to win one of these coupons.  Everyone will receive a free chance to win the prize of their choice just for showing up, and it’ll be a great time.
