Britton Fund Ride 2018

The 11th Annual Britton Fund Ride took place on April 23rd, 2018 in Santa Rosa, CA. Our event was held at Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country. 26 riders took either a quick 10 mile loop or chose from 30, 60, or 90 miles to help us increase research and education in tree care. The ride included a tree planting and ceremony at a local elementary school, led by arborist entertainment/advocate group, TreeCircus.

Our ride on April 23rd raised $18,426 for The Britton Fund Grant Research projects. We donated $6,250 to the Santa Rosa Parks Foundation to help with the recent wild fire that passed through.

Here’s what past riders have said:

  • It was incredibly fun! Great group of people, very easy going, good food, we raised so much money – very successful and rewarding experience.
  • Lots of great people I would probably not have had a chance to get to know otherwise. Beautiful setting. Wonderful support from SAG. The choice of length of ride was really important to many people I spoke to.
  • You’re riding for a great cause and it was inspiring to me all the donations I received from residents who wanted to support tree research.
  • A complicated way of having fun and feeling good about the world. Camaraderie is HUGE. Personal challenge is a driving, but daunting, force. I guarantee participating in The Britton Fund Ride will be a personal uplifting, invigorating experience for YOU!!
