Ride 430 Challenge (Formerly Ride For Semper Fi)

October 10, 2012 - October 13, 2012

Scottsdale, Arizona – Go Ride 430 Challenge! The ride kicks off October 10 in Scottsdale, Arizona, and will end at Camp Pendleton in San Diego on October 13.

This is the fifth year for the ride, which takes place over 4 days and covers 430 miles. The Ride 430 Challenge is a non-profit cycling event that helps give America’s injured military service members and their families hope and assistance as they travel the road to recovery.

The Ride is a four-day, 430-mile challenge in which cyclists must complete more than 100 miles each day, including mountain climbs. In addition to training and completing the ride, participants must fundraise, with the average rider raising more than $6,600 for the cause; this is more per rider than any other event of its kind.

Money raised by the Ride 430 Challenge supplements military assistance and bridges gaps to help injured service members, as well as families who have lost loved ones, recover. The funding helps provide everything from financial assistance and scholarships to adaptive sports equipment or camps for kids who have lost a parent in combat.

Ride 430 Challenge:
We will give a warm Southern California Semper Fi welcome to the riders at 1:00 PM Saturday, October 13 at Camp Pendleton, San Diego. We will show our gratitude to this incredibly dedicated group (this year, 65 riders strong) who continually support the Semper Fi Fund!

Thank you Boeing and Wells Fargo for sponsoring this event!

In addition to the ride, event organizers hosted “Boeing Presents The 3rd Annual Freedom Swing” Charity Golf Tournament that took place on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 8:00 AM at the Kierland Resort, North Scottsdale.
