"To Whom it may concern:
I have been participating in Cape Cod Charitable Funraiser events for the last 16 years in a row. Mostly, the Last Gasp bike ride, but I have also attended most of the awards ceremonies and opening events as well. I find CCCF produces the most well organized charity events I have ever had the pleasure to participate in. I have participated in other bike rides, and the issue I have most (with all of them except CCCF) is that we never know how much of the monies raised actually end up going to the charity. With CCCF, we know UP FRONT that all the money goes to the cause. That's phenomenal! Also, the Last Gasp is run like a fine watch; everything has gone smoothly, with all the sponsers, the events themselves; not easy when you coordinate an entire day's events subject to mother nature. This is a three-legged event that is no small challenge to put together.
I do not generally give donations to charities unless I can participate in the event. For the Last Gasp, you are "in" from the beginning, from registration, to fund raising, and of course, the ride itself. The ride is an all-day event; 5 hours for the ride. But the boat ride back and the clam bake are what really make it an entire event. In fact, more time is spent thanking everyone for their participation then the ride itself. Well beyond the monies raised by the event, it's the most fun you can have in a day. When the weather is good, the bike ride is pleasant enough, the boat ride back is very scenic (and festive) and the clam back is an authentic Cape Cod way to wind down a glorious day. Everyone participates, all have fun, and for a great cause.
It's a wonderful thing; raising money for people in need right here on the Cape. And it all started with three guys on a last minute whim to ride to P-town at the end of the summer. What a tribute. Well run and a lot of fun!
