Mo Power 24 Hour Cycling Fundraiser
Rapid City, SD — Hay Camp Brewing Company got the blood pumping for their annual Movember fundraiser with the Mo Power pledge. The event was a 24 hour spin session in which power generated by bikes were converted into pledge money for the Movember foundation. The foundation started in Australia, but is a worldwide foundation that raises awareness for and promotes mens health.
Sam Papendick, co-ownerof Hay Camp Brewing Company says “Really, it’s all about the power that is being generated. That’s why we call it the mo power pledge. So each bike is monitoring the real time power, but we also get hourly averages and so you can see there is a leader board down here, and then based on how much each team has gotten pledged to them, they’ll raise a certain number of funds. And all that goes to the Movember foundation.
The bikes were donated by Sol Vibes and were manned by five 8-person teams. Most of the teams did a continues bike, where riders completed 3 hour stints over the 24 hour period. Other teams decided to complete half hour relays in hopes of generating the most power.
Riders kept up the momentum over the 24 hours with energizing music and beautiful trail scenes. It was a real workout, but the event was a success with Hay Camp raising $10,756.99.
