CHANHASSEN, MN – In just its second year, the annual Ride of a Life Time, a charity cycle event raising money to benefit the health of kids, fundraised more than $1 million in 40+ metro markets. More than 8,000 people took part in riding and more contributed in exceeding the goal.

Funds raised during Ride of a Life Time benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Life Time Foundation, two dedicated organizations that support hospitals caring for kids in need and collaborate with school food leaders to help them serve wholesome, nourishing, minimally processed foods in schools across the country, respectively.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provide the treatments and cures kids need today from illness and disease so that they can fulfill their potential. Donations are even more crucial now, with 89% of its member hospitals reporting recent staffing shortages due to the impact of the pandemic.

The Life Time Foundation works with schools to ensure the nutrition provided through their meals is the best it can be so every child can grow up happy, strong and healthy. For some children, these meals may be the only they receive on a daily basis. The Life Time Foundation partners with 35 school districts, which impacts 3,634 schools and 264 million healthy meals served to 1.7 million students each year.

“This past weekend was epic in our quest to help kids live healthy and happy lives — and it’s thanks to the more than 8,000 people who took part,” Life Time President and Chief Operating Officer Jeff Zwiefel says. “To everyone who rode, pledged and supported this event, you are making a difference in local hospitals and schools in your communities through Children’s Miracle Network and Life Time Foundation.”

Since its inception in 2021, Ride of a Life Time has raised more than $1.6 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Life Time Foundation. If you missed your chance to participate in Ride of a Life Time, donations for the causes will remain open through May at www.rideofalifetime.life.
