The Trans NH Bike Ride fundraising philosophy is very simple: Do everything we can to raise the largest amount possible for the NH Muscular Dystrophy Association. For 2018, our goal is $203,000, a 4% increase from 2017.
The Board of Directors for the ride makes every effort to keep our operating costs low while providing the highest quality support and accommodations for the ride participants.
All the funds raised remain in New Hampshire — and thus help our friends and neighbors who are affected by muscular dystrophy and other difficult and life-threatening muscle diseases.
Expense to fundraising ratio
Riders often ask how we can “afford” things such as hotel accommodations. Over the past 5 years, expenses have averaged 12.7% of the total funds raised. One hundred percent (100%) of the expenses are direct costs of the ride – there is no administration expense charged to the ride.
The cost to register is $50; this fee is then applied to each rider’s fundraising minimum. Riders are required to raise the following:
- 3-day ride $ 1,000 minimum
- 2-day ride $ 650 minimum
- 1-day ride $ 250 minimum
Once you’ve registered, you’ll be sent a login to your MDA fundraising page where you can tell the story about the person for whom you’re riding or why you’re riding. Your fundraising amount will be listed, as well as your goal progress.
