Celebrating and Benefiting the Community
Charitable Mission of Jeremiah Bishop's Apline Loop Gran Fondo
Jeremiah Bishop's Alpine Loop Gran Fondo provides the opportunity
and inspiration for individuals and teams to take on great challenges in support of worthy causes. Beyond operating expenses, all proceeds from the event will directly benefit charitable causes.
The Alpine Loop Gran Fondo will further organize support for its charitable causes through recruiting additional donations, fundraising programs, raffles, silent auctions of donated merchandise, and The Bike Capital Gala event in Downtown Harrisonburg.
Prostate Cancer Awareness Project
The mission of the Prostate Cancer Awareness Project is to significantly increase the prostate cancer survivor rate by dramatically increasing the rate of early detection, with the objective that that no man should experiences a surprise, post-metastasis prostate cancer diagnosis.
As the Presenting Sponsor of the inaugural Alpine Loop Gran Fondo and returning for 2012, Prostate Cancer Awareness Project has shown its dedication to supporting events that promote awareness. For more information, visit www.ProstateCancerAwarenessProject.org.
With the inspiration and challenge of the Alpine Loop, there is no limit to the amount of support this event can return to its Presenting Sponsor!
