This year’s cause for our CHAFE 150 2019 Gran Fondo charity ride is Children’s Literacy.

Did you know that for the local school district, in Spring of 2018, only 50% of LPOSD third graders were proficient readers (as measured by our state ISAT assessment)?

This means that as much as 50% of children in the third-grade in Lake Pend Oreille School district are not meeting their grade-level reading skills.

CHAFE150 charity ride is accepting donations to support our children with their learning.

👉 Donate at: CHAFE150.org

In the past, our ride has raised over $250k to help improve educational resources for children in the Lake Pend Oreille School District and, especially, those on the autism spectrum.

Children’s illiteracy can make a powerful impact on a child and affects their social skills, overall learning experience and their confidence as they make their way through school, life and later adulthood.

Let’s help support kids with their success in life by raising funds to improve children’s literacy!

Remember, your registration fee goes towards monies raised in support of the cause!

If you haven’t already, be sure to visit CHAFE150.org to register for this year’s event.
