CF Cycle for Life Featured Ride
Check out our featured ride for inspiration as we join across the country to get our wheels in motion to find a cure for CF!
Sacramento CF Cycle for Life:
Each fall, cyclists participating in Sacramento CF Cycle for Life enjoy an incredible ride as they navigate their way through miles of breathtaking terrain along the rolling California Sierra Nevada Foothills and Winery Trail - all in support of the CF Foundation’s quest for a cure to this disease. Along their journey, cyclists are greeted by friends and loved ones, who enjoy food and wine as they celebrate the riders’ impassioned fight against CF. With nearly 200 cyclists, last year the Sacramento Chapter’s ride raised more than $100,000. Check it out here!
One of the 20 teams that participated last year – Team Lennar Homes of California – doubled the number of team members and the amount in donations in just one year. And now they are gearing up in full force for the October 8, 2016 ride.
About Team Lennar
Lennar Homes of California, one of America’s leading homebuilders, has always placed a high premium on philanthropy throughout the organization. When Earl Keith, regional vice president of Lennar Homes of California, was introduced to the Foundation and CF Cycle for Life, he knew he wanted to get his organization involved. He is always focused on doing something meaningful in the community.
Our cycling team has grown both in participating cyclists and funds raised by more than 50 percent since joining the ride in 2014, and we look forward to this year’s ride as we challenge ourselves to double our efforts,” Earl said. “Philanthropy is a big part of our culture and we are excited to give back to our community. We hope you will join Team Lennar as we raise funds for the fight against cystic fibrosis.”
In their first year, Team Lennar had more than 30 participating cyclists and raised more than $18,000. After raising more than $35,000 last year, Team Lennar is upping their goal! The Team aspires to have more than 90 participating cyclists and to raise more than $60,000 in 2016.
“Earl enthusiastically and passionately leads the Lennar Team to incredible growth year after year, becoming the Sacramento CF Cycle for Life’s highest fundraiser,” said Pete Tucker, executive director of the CF Foundation Sacramento chapter. “We are so grateful for all our corporate teams, who, like Team Lennar, make a real impact on the community in support of people with CF and their families.”
