The Nationwide Ride is a two-person charity cycling event hosted by Green Barn Events that will kick off on Good Morning America on July 5, 2021. The coast-to-coast ride will span over 3,500 miles and directly benefit eight worthy nonprofit foundations. Along the route from New York City to Pacific City, Oregon, two riders will be joined by celebrities, athletes, sponsors and special guests as they pedal 85 miles a day for 45 days.
The Nationwide Ride consists of seven cycling stages. Each 500-mile stage will be supported by a generous sponsor and benefit a nonprofit organization. 100% of every dollar donated via text-to-give or online donations will go directly to the benefiting charities. The Harrington Family Foundation is grateful to be one of the benefiting charities in the last stage of the ride, thanks to the generosity of Safeway Albertsons. The final stage of the ride (Stage 7) begins in Boise, ID on August 17 and ends at the finish line in Pacific City, Oregon on August 22, 2021.
Benefiting charities also include: Fire Family Foundation, Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Ohio, First Responders Foundation, Black & Gold NW (USO, Special Operations Warriors Foundation and The Green Beret Foundation), The Sam Day Foundation (Pediatric Cancer Research), Feeding America, and The Maurice Lucas Foundation.
