9th Annual AJF Ride4Autism – Getting Us Where We Need to Go!

AJF friends and families pedaled it out for the 9th Annual AJF Ride4Autism event on Saturday, September 10, 2016. Participants of all ages and levels beat the 95-degree heat to raise over $96,000 as they made their way through scenic Bucks County, PA on four designated courses.

The “2016 AJF Team Challenge” ended in a tie with both teams raising $12,000 toward our fundraising goal. The reigning champ, Team ISI Benefits (captain – Michael Jacobson) and Team Blackthorn Rugby Bicycle Club (captain – Allan Corless) accepted the AJF Team cup agreeing to share it throughout the year! Team Connor/Adam Brittain took 3rd place honors by contributing close to $5,000.

Those who have participated know that it’s the commitment and camaraderie between riders, sponsors and volunteers that makes this event so successful and why so many return year after year. A heartfelt thanks for your continued support! Be on the lookout for the announcement about our milestone 10th Annual AJF Ride4Autism scheduled for September 9, 2017. We’ll see you at the finish line!
