From now until the Giddy Up Challenge weekend begins, we will be announcing our top fundraiser. This week, our top fundraiser is Beth Collins! Beth is from Traverse City, Michigan and has chosen to bike a half Everest. She will be completing her challenge in Grand Junction, CO. Beth was introduced to cycling through running/triathlons and has been cycling for 30+ years now. She decided to #GiddyUp and fundraise because she believes it's a great way to build community and that it is important to take care of the places we treasure. Beth says "The main mantra I carry and put on my handlebar is 'Because I Can'. I am grateful to be able ride, to do hard things, to share the trail with others. It is a gift I don’t take for granted." Beth has raised $1,850 so far! Thank you Beth for your commitment to Be Good!
Learn more about Beth in her interview below with Kate Puddy, our Giddy Up Challenge Fundraising Manager.
