    Ride… and Run 4A Reason!

    We are so excited to announce our partnership with the Lake Merritt Joggers and Striders (LMJS) as R4R offers it’s first ever in-person run option on Sunday April 24 at Lake Merritt. Runners can opt to run a 5, 10 or 15K. Details will be shared closer to the date but you can sign up to “Run 4A Reason” now for $40 (students and teachers will receive a $10 discount at checkout). Your registration includes an R4R t-shirt (if you register by Feb. 18), access to a customizable personal fundraising page and a large community of R4R supporters to back you up!


    Volunteers Needed!

    Montera is hosting the rest stop in Fairfield, from 10am-1:30pm on April 23rd and we need 4-8 volunteers! Be part of a team that sets up a rest stop and energizes riders with snacks and water to get them to the finish in Sacramento. Volunteers may check in and out directly at their rest stop location. No further commitment is required after the shift is over! Proof of vaccination is required for all volunteers. Email r4r@monterapto.com to sign up today!


    R4R & Covid-19 Safety Update

    While we are still hopeful for an in-person event in April, we are very aware of Covid-19’s changing nature and know that it will impact the event in some way. With the current rise of new variants, the committee has decided to require proof of vaccination for all participants and volunteers on Saturday, April 23, 2022, in an attempt to keep our communities and families as safe as possible. If you have already registered, we will be in touch with a separate email on next steps in January.  Thank you for helping to keep R4R as safe as possible.
