Time to get your team jersey

Team jerseys are a great way to rally support,  build cammeraderie and provide a distinctive look for your team. Even better, we encourage our teams to add a little Obliteride orange to their jersey. How?

Morrie's Story: 'Never Give Up'

Stage 4 cancer can't stop Morrie Shepherd from training for Obliteride. He’s been traveling to some interesting places recently – from Panama to Costa Rica to Arizona making sure he enjoys every day and lives life to its fullest.  Part of that includes raising money for Obliteride to support lifesaving research at Fred Hutch. He comes back to Seattle for treatment, and he checks in with us frequently. He’s a huge fan of Obliteride, and we’re a huge fan of his.

Obliteride 101

We recently hosted an “Obliteride 101” forum for first-time participants and those thinking about joining Obliteride.  We know this is the first time many people have ever done a ride like this, and they have many questions. The goals of the open forum were to introduce our team, demystify Obliteride and answer specific questions.

Fundraising Tip: Just Ask!

Last month we asked you to update your fundraising page with a great photo and personal message about why are you doing Obliteride. 
 
This month, it’s all about “THE ASK.”
