Costs & Benefits:

The New York Ride & Retreat weekend costs Hazon about $400 per rider. This includes meals, lodging, transportation, snacks, bike and medical support and a weekend filled with programming. The rider participant registration fee does not cover that full cost, with the balance being covered by 20% of rider fundraising.

Like you, we want as much money as possible to go to the cause. You could just write a check to support Hazon and our partners, but the bike ride has many advantages that cannot be calculated financially. Through the Ride you are raising awareness, cultivating future riders and helping to build the Hazon community.

If you would like more of your fundraising to go towards the cause, we encourage you to sponsor yourself right on the registration form to help cover these costs. If you choose to do that, we encourage you to tell your donors that you covered your own participation with a personal donation. This act shows that you are serious about supporting your ride financially as well as physically. The registration fee is non-refundable and not tax-deductible, but any donations above the registration fee are acknowledged as contributions.

Registration fee includes:

  • All meals and snacks during the Shabbat retreat and Ride
  • Sleeping arrangements
  • SAG (support and gear) vehicles
  • Rest stops every 15-20 miles
  • Mechanical support

Additional Costs and Fees:

We organize bus and bike transportation to the retreat location for a small additional fee. We also may have bike rentals available. You have the opportunity to pay the additional fees on a logistics form which is emailed out before the ride. We also hope to have Hazon apparel and other merchandise for sale at the ride.

Fundraising Minimums

Hazon Rides are one of the largest sources of support for the Jewish Environmental Movement.

You must reach your minimum fundraising requirement by October 31, 2017. If you have not reached your fundraising minimum by the ride, we will collect your credit card information as a guarantee, but we will not charge the balance until October 31st.

To help you reach your fundraising goal, we strongly encourage you to set the goal on your personal web page above your required minimum (the goal you list has no bearing on your fundraising obligation; you are only responsible for the minimums listed above).

Fundraising:

Fundraising can seem like a challenge if you have never done it before. We believe you can achieve your fundraising goals just like you can achieve the mileage goal. Many riders from previous rides have told us over and over again, “It was easy.” “Fundraising can be fun.” “I reached, and even exceeded my goal.” “People were happy to contribute!” Our co-chairs and Hazon staff are committed to helping you achieve your fundraising goals.

You will receive a Ride Guide after you register that includes tips on how to get started, whom to ask, information about where the money goes that you can share with your donors, and sample fundraising letters. We are happy to answer questions, coach you through personal solicitations and even read your fundraising letters before you send them out.
