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!!
