The Cycle-a-Thon will feature multiple teams each riding a stationary bike for a total of 12 hours. Each team will raise a minimum of $1,000, which will go directly to Mercy for America’s Children. The funds raised will be used to support the foster care system, focusing on the more than 600 children currently in foster care in Wake County. Last year’s event raised over $10,000.
The event will take place poolside, rain or shine with music, prizes and more. Spectators are welcome and encouraged.
Mercy for America’s Children advocates on behalf of children awaiting adoption in the U.S. foster care system by educating the public about the benefits of foster care adoption, reforming the adoption process, connecting waiting children to potential adoptive families and supporting them through their adoption journey.
Granite Falls Swim and Athletic Club is located at 800 Granite Falls Blvd. in Rolesville. To join a team, call 919-562-8895 for more information.
