KATY RAM CHALLENGE
APRIL 11, 2015
WE ARE ALMOST THERE!
We’re initiating a call to our membership in preparation for the 13th Annual Katy Ram Challenge (KRC), our largest and most successful fundraising event.
- The Katy Ram Challenge is a non-competitive bicycle ride that we host in the spring of every year. We’ve partnered with the National MS Society to have our event recognized as a recommended training ride for the BP MS150. Our ride offers cyclists the ability to ride from a 12 mile family ride through Katy to a 75 mile ride to Hempstead and down Brookshire. This gives us a great advantage in making this event even more successful. This years Katy Ram Challenge is being held on Saturday, April 11th.
This is where we ask you, our membership, for assistance.
Our rider count has varied over the years and we’re expecting approximately 1,500 riders this year. To ensure all participants have a safe and enjoyable ride, we provide full support, which means:
- setting up multiple rest stops with snacks and refreshments,
- law enforcement for traffic control,
- ambulance and EMT services,
- Special Assistance Groups and ride marshals.
It takes a lot of effort, sponsorships, contributions, and more importantly, volunteers to pull this off.
We need adult and student volunteers to help with:
- registration on the day of the ride,
- five (5) rest stops and
- snack donations (SEE ATTACHED LIST).
Our volunteers help register riders the morning of the ride, cheer riders on as they ride by, welcome them as they stop by each rest stop, hand out snacks, drinks and cheer them on as they head back on the road. It is simply a fun, exciting and rewarding event to share with the students and the community.

We will have a KRC meeting immediately following the next General Booster Meeting on March 3, 2015. If you’re unable to attend, but would like to chair a position, volunteer, donate goods, or contribute in any way, please email Cari Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
