Pedal for Patients and Fun with Friends!

Alliance held its inaugural “Pedal for Patients” bike event Sunday, October 19th, and over 30 bike enthusiasts gathered at Anderson Point Park for the recreational ride!  The weather was simply perfect! Clear, sapphire blue sky, bright, warm sunshine, and a gentle breeze swirling fall’s golden, brown leaves.  National Charity League volunteers greeted the bikers while Flythe Cyclery offered “last-minute” bike adjustments.  Most participants accepted the challenge and rode the 15-mile loop along Raleigh’s gorgeous Neuse River Greenway Trail, complete with views of a waterfall at Milburnie Dam and a suspension bridge over the Neuse.  Mileage points and water stations were marked with brightly colored balloons, and our National Charity League volunteers waved the riders along their way. More nine “patient visits” were sponsored by riders!  Click here for more photos.

Alliance's 2nd Annual "Fun with Friends" event did not disappoint!  Over 150 Alliance friends met by the garden for yard games, dinner from local food trucks and beer from local breweries.  We're already excited for next year!  Click here for more photos.
