The 7th Annual Sonoma County Kids Gran Fondo will be taking place on Sunday, August 18th, 2019. Children from all over will have the chance to challenge themselves, choosing to ride a bike, walk, run, roller skate, skateboard, wheelchair etc. on one of 3 courses, including a 7 mile, 4 mile, or 1 mile route. Parents (strollers included) and dogs are also welcomed to accompany their kids!
The race is followed by an expo with fun activities for the kids, including carnival games and a STEM fair, presented by ThermoFisher Scientific!
WHY the SCKGF?
We believe that it’s entirely possible to change the world - That an individual has the power to make a positive impact on endless lives - and we believe that compassion is the tool that makes all the difference. Through the Sonoma County Kids Gran Fondo, we’re encouraging kids to help other kids, and nurturing them to grow with open minds and compassionate hearts. It’s fun, inclusive and educational, and above all else, we truly believe it makes a positive impact for children in need.
Each year, through kid-activated fundraising and the community effort of Petaluma and the surrounding area, the SCKGF raises money for local families of children dealing with life-threatening illnesses or disabilities- We call these brave kids our Heroes.
