This is the 9th year of The Great Ride, part of the City of Richardson's Corporate Challenge. There were over 200 participants in 2018! Each participating company is asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 for Special Olympics Texas, the event's charity of choice for over 20 years. To date, the Challenge has given this organization over $2 million dollars, which has provided hundreds of Special Olympic athletes with uniforms, transportation to competitions, quality equipment and hours of practice time. The Great Ride was added as a fundraising aspect that allows anyone to participate in raising money for this great cause and have fun doing it! If you are part of the Corporate Challenge teams, be sure to select your company name for "credit" for raising money. Not part of the Corporate Challenge? No worries, all riders are welcome!

Minimum Donation - $25 per driver, $10 per passenger. (But you can always give more!)

Rain Out - If rained out, this event will not be rescheduled.
