“This “Ride with a Purpose” is produced by United Way of the Greater Dayton Area to increase awareness and raise funds to invest into valuable services throughout the area and provide a platform for other non-profits to raise funds to support their specific missions.” This is a fun, family-friendly way for cyclists of all ages and abilities to have a positive impact in their community and explore the many GEMs the Dayton region has to offer. In just 6 years, we have raised over $430,000 for 60+ Nonprofits!
