BIKE TO THE BEAT has been cancelled for the safety of our Community but we still need you!!

 

Due to the impact that COVID-19 has had on our communities health and well-being, our team at Fox Communities Credit Union had to make the tough decision to cancel Bike to the Beat: Track 5, which was scheduled for Saturday, August 1, 2020.

Early bird bike registration pricing began early in 2020. Due to this, we have registration funds totaling over $17,000. Since we started Bike to the Beat in 2016 it was our mission to give these funds back to local non-profits in our communities. Fox Cares Foundation, a 501(c)(3) which supports hunger, homelessness and the arts now manages the allocation of these monies. Over the past four years this has resulted in over $180,000 given back to support our communities! And this is all due to you, our Bike to the Beat riders.

For the past two years, as the popularity of our ride has increased, we have been able to donate back to the community over $52,000 in 2018 and then again over $56,000 in 2019. This year we were on track to match and possibly surpass the 2019 amount. We are hoping with your help and Fox Communities Credit Union’s, we will be able to bring in the $50,000 for 2020.

Our communities need our financial support more than ever!

How can your 2020 Bike to the Beat registration help raise $50,000 to support our communities?

If you already paid and you leave your registrations funds with us, Fox Communities will match those fees. NO OTHER ACTION IS REQUIRED ON YOUR PART.

Are you torn between being charitable and needing your money back? You can do a little bit of both!
  1. Visit this webpage
  2. Choose “Donate 50% of My Entry Fee to the Fox Cares Foundation, Refund 50% to Me” to donate half of your registration cost to the Foundation and have the other half returned to you.
  3. The half that you leave will be matched by Fox Communities.
Anyone that generously adds, to the over $17,000 already paid registrations, will be matched by Fox – up to $25,000!
      1. To add please visit this webpage
      2. Then fill out a new entry registration and the amount entered will be matched up to $25,000!

We believe that with your help and that of the Foundation, we can lessen the impact of homelessness and hunger caused by COVID-19.

Would like your entry fee refunded?

  • Please visit this webpage and click on the option that says “Refund 100% of My Entry Fee” and then follow the prompts to complete your request.
  • Understand that we are only able to refund your registration entry fee, and the online processing fees paid to Get Me Registered are for their efforts in managing all of the registration and payment services and we are unable to return those to you.
  • Please know that it will be approximately two weeks after the June 18th date to see the refund.

 

Note: You will need your original transaction ID (starting with “Q”) to select an option. There is a link on the page to obtain your original confirmation and transaction number.

Paid individuals and team captains may select from the following options through June 18, 2020. If we do not hear from you by this date, your registration will be treated as a donation to the Fox Cares Foundation. Thank you for your continued support of Bike to the Beat! Keep riding and singing. See you next year for Bike to the Beat: Track 6, on August 7, 2021!
