Trail to a Cure’s primary means of meeting its mission is the annual Trail to a Cure Bike Ride/Walk/Run fundraising event on the first Saturday in May in MEMORY of those we’ve lost to HIV/AIDS, in HONOR of those living with HIV/AIDS, and in HOPE of finding a cure.
The 2017 TTAC event will be held on the Katy Trail in Rocheport, Missouri on Saturday, May 6, 2017 and include rides/walks/runs of various distances and a family-friendly post-event celebration with live music, free food for participants (available for guest purchase), a cash bar, a bike raffle drawing, a silent raffle, medal ceremony for runners, and more–immediately following the ride/walk/run event.
The event now features a timed half-marathon, along with self-timed 5K and 10K runs and 5K/10K walk options!
There are several options for participants of all ages and skill levels to choose from.
There are various distances, so even less-athletic or experienced participants may get involved, including young people and children.
The ride/walk/run is fun, but that’s not why we do this. Our primary purpose is to raise funds to fight HIV/AIDS. The simplest and most beneficial way to start raising funds for the event is to use our online fundraising service through Firstgiving.com. Click the image below once the event details are announced.
All donations are tax-deductible, and 100% of funds raised by participants go the event’s beneficiaries who are working to find a cure for HIV/AIDS and helping those living with HIV/AIDS in central Missouri.
There are many varied opportunities for businesses, organizations, or individuals to sponsor the event. Our sponsorships allow TTAC to cover the cost of the event so that all participant-raised funds can go to our cause.
Please contact us for more information about sponsorship opportunities or with event-related questions.
Thank you on behalf of our beneficiary organizations!
A note about shopping local:
TTAC’s general policy and practice is to use local vendors whenever possible and partner with locally based businesses in fundraisers. The “shop local” idea is that keeping our funds local supports people in our community who help build that community, rather than large corporations who have no vested interest in our community other than money. Thus, by policy, we only work with local partners/vendors. In situation where no local vendor is available, we seek to work with those closest to us.
