LIVESTRONG Day Ketchum – Tuesday May 13




“I’ll be around – how could I participate and support those affected by cancer?”

  • Do the group ride up north – starts at Forest Service Park. Meet at 5:15
  • Participate in the NON-competitive criteriums. Any bike will do, we’ll ride around the park 4 times as a group. Kids criterium is 2 laps … bring your kids and get them involved! Crits start at 7pm – come early to register … see below
  • Participate in the “ELITE” cruiser race. If you want to race against other cruiser riders. 6 laps.
  • Come listen to music, buy food and beers – and dance.
  • Wear yellow (or a silly costume)
  • You could do all of the above … but see how to participate below.


 “Dang it. I’m going to be away on May 13 … but I still want to support those affected by cancer.”

  • Donate to Livestrong anyway – and you’ll be entered in the raffle. You don’t need to be there to win.
  • Wear yellow on May 13 wherever you are!




We ask you donate a minimum of $20 (as an adult) to the LIVESTRONG Foundation via the website or on a pledge form (at local bike shops and at Sun Valley Center for the Arts). Kids can donate $5 to participate. ONLINE donation is easiest! 

For every $20 donated (you can give MORE if you’d like!), you’ll get a raffle ticket and a free beer (if you’re old enough!). You can get more raffle tickets at the park on May 13 ($5 each, or 5 for $20). Prizes include: new Schwinn cruiser bike, a new Scott Reflex 60, Twin Six gear, bike gear, LiveSTRONG gear, beer and MORE!!!


If you prefer to use a PAPER pledge form … please return it to Sun Valley Center for the Arts by Friday May 9 (191 Fifth St. East, Ketchum) or bring it to the park on May 13. 


At 6:30 on May 13 – Registration starts – get your raffle tickets filled out and get a wristband …  

Everyone who has donated BEFORE May 12 will get DOUBLE raffle tickets for their donations. If you’ve donated online, we’ll get confirmations and will have your name and donation amount there. To donate the day of the event, we’ll have pledge forms and wireless internet if you’d prefer to donate online.




TEAMS? I want to get my co-workers / friends / bike group to make a team and raise money together – and ride together on LIVESTRONG Day Ketchum …

Grab a handful of pledge forms, name your team, and turn in your pledge forms TOGETHER as a group. There will be prize for the TEAM who raises the most money.


PLEDGES? I want to ride … and I’d like to get others to donate money to LIVESTRONG …

You can ask your co-workers, friends or your mom for a donation. To bundle YOUR donation, please use the PAPER pledge forms – and turn it in BEFORE May 12!!!! That will be easier for us to figure out who has raised the most money as an individual. There will be a prize for whoever raises the most money individually.


KINDS OF BIKES? WHAT IF I’M A ‘BAD’ RIDER? Can I ride my road bike in the criterium?

We don’t care what kind of bike you have. We don’t care if you’re a “good rider”. We want you to come to the event and support those affected by cancer! On the ride up north – you can go as far (or short) as you’d like to go. For the crit, we’d love to see your oldest cruiser town bikes, tandem bikes, banana seat wonder – but if you don’t have one – ride your mountain bike, your road bike, or your kid’s trike. Just come out – and have fun.


I don’t ride bikes …

Jeepers. Kidding. NO problem. Make a donation, buy a raffle ticket, or just wear yellow and buy a beer. Give someone who has been affected by cancer a pat on the back and ask them how you can help. Just show up!


I still have questions …or want to help or donate a prize … Call Kristine Bretall at 720-8913.
