About

Make history with Lime Connect by joining us on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018 for the inaugural Lime Connect Century Ride presented by Bloomberg Philanthropies! This event will bring together passionate riders and supporters for a scenic ride across Northern Virginia for a great cause: forging a pathway to success in the corporate workplace for students and professionals - including veterans - with disabilities. 100% of all proceeds raised will go toward Lime Connect’s mission to rebrand disability.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Lime Connect Century Ride! Without the support of enthusiastic and caring volunteers like you, producing this event would not be possible. Volunteering is a fun way to help further Lime Connect’s cause, play in the outdoors, and spend time with friendly people.

Volunteers groups are welcome! It is a great opportunity for companies, community groups and other teams to bond and have fun while supporting a great cause. Volunteers are needed all day and most shifts last 3-5 hours. All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and swag, all meals, and our sincerest thanks. More information is available at www.limeconnect.com/centuryride.
