ReidRide Inspires More Than 650 Cyclists

reid ride, richmond, in

reid ride, richmond, in

Mary Bockover and her granddaughter, Brianne

Registrations are pouring into the office of Reid Hospital Foundation as they prepare for their fourth annual ReidRide.  The event invites cyclists from the region to bring families, friends and co-workers for a 22-mile ride around Wayne County.

“ReidRide is a great way to fulfill our mission, get people moving and support healthy lifestyles,” said Foundation Director Jason Troutwine. “We have people of all fitness levels come out for the Ride and realize an accomplishment they will talk about all year.”

One such rider is 76-year-old Mary Bockover. After triple bypass heart surgery less than a year ago, Mary is already training for her second ReidRide…and telling her story all over town. If she can do ReidRide, anyone can.

“I would encourage all older people to do ReidRide,” Bockover said. “I’m just thrilled I can do it again this year!”

In addition to the community wellness initiative, ReidRide raises funds for another cause – Shoes for Kids. This Reid program takes proceeds from the Ride and purchases over 2,500 pairs of shoes for underprivileged children in the region.

“The shoe distributions are some of the most humbling experiences,” Troutwine said. “We have children come with the soles of their shoes duct taped. Others are amazed the shoes actually match. It is truly an important community effort.”

The cost to ride is ten dollars, and every registration purchases a pair of shoes. “The more people we can involve in ReidRide, the more shoes we can distribute,” said Foundation Board Member Lee Elzemeyer.

The Ride begins at Reid Hospital and heads south on Chester Boulevard. Connecting via North A and Main Streets, riders will head to Centerville on US 40. After a half-way stop at Centerville Christian Church, riders head north on Centerville Road to Webster and catch the Cardinal Greenway back to Industries Road and Reid.

Online registration and additional information is available at ReidRide.org.

The Reid Ride is Saturday, July 28th

Wayne County Foundation Announces New Grant Program Up to $300,000 For Non-Profits

wayne county foundation

 WAYNE COUNTY FOUNDATION TO AWARD UP TO $150,000
IN MULTIPLE CHALLENGE MATCH GRANTS

Potential $300,000 Benefit to the Community

The Wayne County Foundation has announced a matching-grant opportunity for selected organizations in the county as part of its Challenge Match Program. The one-to-one match offers the possibility of generating $300,000 or more for non-profits in the Wayne County community. It is specifically designed to help organizations cultivate new donors and encourage increased giving from current contributors.

The open call for proposals seeks ideas that will encourage philanthropy throughout the community. The initiatives can be specific projects or programs, or represented in the form of general operating support.

Organizations may apply individually; charitable groups that are not qualified charities must partner with an organization that is. Any charitable not-for-profit organization, school, or government agency in Wayne County is eligible to apply.

A Foundation-supplied cover sheet, a two page summary of the project which includes a plan for raising the matching funds, and a one page summary of the organization’s 2012 operating budget must be submitted to the Foundation by August 16 at 4 p.m. The organizations that put forward the most promising plans will be selected to participate in the Challenge Match Program to be held from October 29 to November 9.

“We know similar campaigns have been extremely successful in other communities,”

said Steve Borchers, the Foundation’s Executive Director. “We hope to create an opportunity for the organizations to raise significant additional dollars in support of their programs, new initiatives, and/or operational support. Moreover, we hope that it will engage the community.”

The Challenge Match Program is one feature of a larger set of changes to the Foundation’s grant making program. A new emphasis to better align the Foundation’s regular, competitive grantmaking cycles with its mission of improving the quality of life and enhancing the spirit of community was implemented earlier this year.

Representatives of organizations interested in submitting a proposal are invited to attend an information meeting at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 10 at the Innovation Center in Richmond. More information may also be obtained by visiting the Foundation’s website at www.waynecountyfoundation.org, contacting Andrea Stuckey at Andrea@waynecountyfoundation.org, or by calling 765/962-1638.
