Wheels of Justice Cycling
Entering its 10th year our team has now raised more than $2.3 million for Children's Hospital Colorado since our start in 2005... In 2014, our sponsors and 271 cyclists raised $365,000+ for the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. In 2015, please join us in the fight against childhood cancer.
WoJ Update: $314K & 213 Riders; Cajun Boil Benefit 8/29; Leadership SDinner 9/9; Keep Going till 8/31; Snap there goes the $2.6 million mark!
I hope the end of your summer is going well! We are delighted to welcome two amazing WoJ Partner Teams into the WoJ fold: 1) Kick Cancer’s Ass (Captain Amy Goodner) and 2) Jared’s Google-Eyed Warriors (Captain: Angela Lujan). Because these teams graciously opted to merge with the Wheels of Justice, the money they worked so hard to raise (more than $26K) will go directly to the cause that inspires them: the fight against pediatric cancer at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Hospital Colorado.
DON’T FORGET: CONTRIBUTIONS must be postmarked by Monday Aug 31 to be counted towards this year’s campaign. Deadlines can be highly motivating for most people – so why not send out one last round of emails to any potential donors who might be on the fence. Every dollar will make a difference!
SNAP! THERE IT IS: WoJ has now surpassed $2.6 million in net fundraising for the CCBD in our 10 years of existence! THANKS TO EACH AND EVERY WOJ RIDER AND SUPPORTER FOR YOUR INCREDIBLE EFFORTS!
1) RSVP NOW for the HOLLAND & KNIGHT CAJUN BOIL benefiting WoJ on 8/29
On Saturday August 29 from 1:00-7:00pm, the Denver office of Holland & Knight will host an amazing party to benefit the Children’s Hospital Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders via the Wheels of Justice Team . The event will feature a great band (playing from 3-6 pm) plus scrumptious blue crabs and savory shrimp. And we’ll recognize our amazing team sponsors and MVPs. We look forward to seeing you at 4370 Pine Ridge Rd in Golden on the 29th. Please RSVP here!
A HUGE THANK YOU TO TEAM LEADERS AARON BRADFORD AND BEN MAXWELL FOR HOSTING THIS AMAZING EVENT!
2) WoJ 2.0 LEADERSHIP SUMMIT & DINNER: September 9 at 5:30pm – help us make the Team’s next decade even better than the first!At our Team Party at Copper, I announced that after 10 years, the Wheels of Justice Team has arrived at an important crossroads. Our sources of support are changing and our leadership is in need of a new infusion of people with fresh ideas, energy and commitment. For many reasons, I personally am planning to transition to “emeritus” status after helping to ensure that the Team’s support – on which the CCBD relies so much to help kids — remains unwavering.
So we are CALLING the NEXT GENERATION of WoJ LEADERS! We are in need of a strong team of individuals to commit their time and energy to making the REBOOT of WoJ a big success. Your contribution could fall under one of many headings: Marketing, Event Logistics, Tech Support, Website Design and Updating, Social Media Outreach, Sponsor Recruitment and Management, Fundraising, Apparel Design and Organization, Newsletter Writing and Production, Rider Recruitment, Invitations – or you might just invent your own new department and a bold new direction for the Team! And if we have 20 volunteers (rather than 10), the amount of time each of us will spend ensuring that all of these bases are covered will be quite limited.
If being a part of the Wheels of Justice has ever made you feel proud of the support we provide for kids battling cancer, if it’s ever left you with a lump in your throat or a tear on your face or made your life better through fitness, friendship or family – then now’s the time to give back by stepping into the Team Leadership Circle to shape the future of our team.
So please join us for our TEAM LEADERSHIP SUMMIT AND DINNER on Wednesday Sept. 9 at 5:30pm at Guard & Grace restaurant in downtown Denver (1801 California). We’ll meet to discuss ideas and craft an action plan to make our team the BEST IT’S EVER BEEN, then we’ll share a fantastic dinner hosted by our amazing Team Captain Aaron Bradford. To RSVP for this event or to ask questions about the LEADERSHIP SUMMIT and the changes ahead for the team, please contact me at email@example.com or 303-641-5986.
Last year, our 271 riders raised more than $375,000 to make a real difference for the kids, families and doctors at the Children’s Hospital Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) – bringing our nine-year fundraising total to more than $2.3 million. In 2015, we have now passed the $2.6 million mark – please help us raise even more!
