What is a Bike-a-thon?
A bike-a-thon (bikeathon) is a fundraising event that works just like a walk-a-thon, however instead of walking, participants are biking for a cause. Participants bike a predetermined course and commit to raising money for an organization. Bike-a-thons work well because almost everyone knows how to ride a bike and they are an easy family event. Bikers may collect pledges per completed mile or contributors may choose to donate a set amount.
