Thank you for three successful Gears for Good rides in 2017! Because of the generous riders, donors, and sponsors, more than $105,000 was raised for Helping Hands to provide emergency assistance to those living with bleeding disorders experiencing unexpected financial hardship.

We had more than 60 riders from more than 15 states and the District of Columbia participate in 2017, which were held in Connecticut, Northern Ohio and from DC to West Virginia. We look forward to an even more successful ride in 2018, so don’t miss your chance to ride or become a virtual rider. Watch our website for information on registering for our 2018 Gears for Good National Ride on Sept. 21-23, 2018. Registration will be open soon.

Gears for Good charity bicycle ride – for both novice and experienced riders alike – is a fun and energetic way to fundraise for HFA’s Helping Hands program.

It is part cycling and part endurance, combining camaraderie and determination with a passion to help others. One-hundred percent of the money raised by individual donors goes to Helping Hands, which provides families and patients in need with emergency financial assistance for expenses like housing, utilities, transportation, and medically-necessary goods.

With each pedal stroke, you help those in the bleeding disorder community experiencing a financial crisis breathe a little easier.

Throughout the ride, HFA supports your generous gift with hotel accommodations, meals, rest stops along the bike route, bike maintenance and medical assistance, if needed. The atmosphere is friendly, inclusive and fun, so join a ride today! Registering early allows for more time to fundraise.

Join us for the National Ride in DC this September and the Regional Ride in Ohio in October– experience what everyone is talking about!
