Be a hero! Join 200 heroic riders in DuPage County, Illinois and thousands of others across the country on Sunday, June 7, 2020 to support those recovering from opioid and other substance addictions.
With the Coronavirus outbreak, compromised immune systems make those with the disease of addiction more vulnerable to COVID-19 disease.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “people with opioid use disorder (OUD) and methamphetamine use disorder may also be vulnerable due to those drugs’ effects on respiratory and pulmonary health.”
That makes Pedal4Life’s mission even more critical: to keep the bodies of those in recovery healthy!
In the spirit of humanitarian responsibility, Pedal4Life has modified this year’s HeroInMe Ride: We’re social distancing this year’s event!
What Does Social Distance Cycling Look Like? Together, we will ride separately. Instead of congregating at the Meijer grocery store on Sunday, June 7th, we will meet at 8 a.m., via Zoom conferencing for our annual Opening Ceremony and yoga/stretch session. Then we’ll all get out and pedal a 20, 32, or 48-mile route of our choice!
Win prizes for best costume, photo, video, and logged training miles!
What’s special about social distance cycling? You can now pedal the HeroInMe Ride with friends, family members and co-workers across the country! Register here! What an opportunity for everyone to make a heroic difference in the fight against addiction while keeping one another safe from the virus!
Tap into your inner hero without tapping your wallet. We lowered the registration fee to just $5 for the entire country! Already registered? We’ll issue you a $60 credit toward the HeroInMe Ride in 2021.
Know someone impacted by substance addiction? The HeroInMe Ride is a profound way to let people know you support them.
