Riding a bike is a great way to feel the wind against your face, second only to marrying the wind and telling it, "I've waited so long for this." Go for a ride with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $26 for a registration to a two-day autumn bike trek (a $55 value)
- $32 for a registration to a three-day autumn bike trek (a $75 value)
Guides lead a 105-mile two-day or 160-mile three-day "at-your-own-pace" tour of the Massachusetts shoreline, trundling along Cape Cod from Plymouth to Provincetown. The tour includes overnight accommodations in cozy cabins, breakfast and dinner each day, and luggage trucks to transport overnight bags from one location to the next.
The tour rewards fundraisers who contribute $500 or more to the American Lung Association of the Northeast; Groupon buyers over 17 years old must raise a minimum of $500 (riders aged 7-17 must raise $400 and be accompanied by a parent on the ride.) In order to assist Groupon purchasers in raising the appropriate funds, the organization provides suggestions, team-building assistance, and a monthly email with helpful updates. Raised funds must be turned in by the first day of the ride, which is held Friday–Sunday, September 28–30.
American Lung Association of the Northeast
Some problems confound the means and efforts of even the most gifted individuals; in 1904, tuberculosis was one such problem. Then, concerned citizens banded together to create the American Lung Association—one of the oldest voluntary health organizations still extant in America today—ultimately defeating the disease through the power of collective action. Today, the nature of the battle may have changed, but the spirit of community concern and volunteerism still thrives. Instead of actively fighting to cure certain diseases, the American Lung Association takes a big-picture approach, helping people quit smoking through education and encouragement, providing in-school programs for kids with asthma, and encouraging the community to keep the air healthy, breathable, and free from clouds of inhalable hornets.
