Come join Hemophilia Federation of America's Team Resilience in-person on June 20 as they take on the towpath in Akron, Ohio, OR virtually, June 19-21, in yourfavorite local park or neighborhood for this spectacular event! HFA has, once again, partnered with the Northern Ohio Hemophilia Foundation for their annual Gears for Good charity bike ride. Riders will raise awareness and funds for Northern Ohio Hemophilia Foundation's Emergency Assistance Fund, a critical safety net for those with bleeding disorders in the Northeast Ohio region.
Over the course of the ride participants will:
•Enjoy beautiful scenery through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, your favorite local park or neighborhood.
•Opt for any mileage up to 50 miles. •Make an impact on the bleeding disorders community by spreading awareness.
At the end of the ride, share your accomplishment with us through photos and videos.
Register by June 20, 2020 to receive a Team Resilience t-shirt and ride packet by mail!
Please contact TeamHFA@hemophiliafed.org with any questions.
One of the easiest ways to share your journey and hit your fundraising goal is to share your training on social media! Post a photo of you on your ride and add your fundraising page and why you are riding for Team Resilience and NOHF.
Every season, getting "back in the saddle" has a period of discomfort. Legs, arms, and, oh my BUTT! You already know that legs just need conditioning, but here is the secret...butts do too.
Ride with bike shorts. Bicycling is not running, and it begs for a pad on your seat. Bike shorts with a nice synthetic pad that is hydrophobic, and ideally contains some closed cell foam inside, helps tremendously.
If you are unsure which brand to go with, reach out to TeamHFA@hemophilifed.org with questions!
