Ride With Us September 9-10, 2022
At Elios Financial, we believe in giving back, or, in other words, “investing in others.” We’ve made sure to instill the idea of “others first” into our daily lives, and as a collective, we’ve come together to help others by engaging in acts that help make an impact in our local community, and the world at large.
That’s one reason why, our founder and CEO, Jim Elios, has participated in Cleveland Clinic’s VeloSano Bike to Cure for the past 6 years in a row.
During that time, with the generous support of friends, family, and clients, Jim has personally raised over 30 thousand dollars for cancer research. He’s a VeloSano “100-miler” and last year, he raised double his pledge to earn the “Big Wheeler” badge. Way to go, Jim!
While we’re incredibly grateful for all the donations to VeloSano by our clients and friends over the past 6 years, we want to make an even bigger impact in 2022.
This year, for the first time ever, we’re organizing an actual TEAM of riders, and we’re asking YOU to join us. There are lots of ways you can get involved – from sponsoring our team to riding with us at Bike to Cure to getting your kids or grandkids involved at our Trike & Bike event to simply donating.
And if you’re daunted by the thought of riding, don’t worry! There are rides of different lengths for riders of all fitness levels – including 5, 25, 50, 75, and 100-mile rides. If you’re not in the Cleveland area, you can participate virtually! Also, Jim’s planning a couple of fun training rides over the summer to help you get ready. Click the “Ride with Us” link below to learn more about routes and associated fundraising commitments for each.
Make a $500 or higher donation and we’ll feature your name or logo on our custom-designed team jerseys! You’ll get a jersey as a thank you, and we’ll also include your logo on this website page and in our team update emails. Sponsors must donate by Friday, July 15.
Join our team and ride at Bike to Cure! There are rides for every fitness level, and you can even participate virtually! Riders get a custom-designed team jersey, acknowledgement on our website, and the opportunity to join Jim on a couple of fun training rides this summer.
Make a secure, online, tax-deductible donation to our team, or towards an individual team member’s donation goal. No amount is too small and 100% of your donation benefits lifesaving cancer research and care at Cleveland Clinic.
We’re hosting a Trike & Bike event Saturday, September 24, 2022 @ 1:00 pm for junior riders ages 3 to 12, benefiting pediatric cancer research at Cleveland Clinic Children’s. This is a great way for your kids and grandkids to “invest in others” while having fun.
The amazing work being done by the gifted scientists, researchers and doctors at Cleveland Clinic is something that’s near and dear to our hearts.
We ride again to honor Jim’s friend, Mat Gleeson, who lost his battle with cancer in early 2020, and Jim’s beloved mother-in-law, Jane B. Lang, who lost her battle in July 2020.
Each year, donations raised by Bike to Cure participants, as well as general donations in support of VeloSano, launch new projects with the potential to develop into lifesaving advances in cancer care and cures. 100% of every dollar raised goes to this important research.
You can learn more about the strides they’re making every day by reading their Impact Report (click here).
Ride with us or give whatever you can. No amount is too small. If you have questions or want to talk with us about how you can contribute, please give us a call or send us an email.
