Gear Up for Tour de Habitat 2015!

Do you need a little bit of extra push to get GOING this winter? Sign up for Tour de Habitat on March 7th and start moving! It’s a fun day to spend with your team of friends, family, co-workers, or church groups and will benefit the community.

What Is Tour de Habitat?

Tour de Habitat is an annual stationary bike race and fundraiser. 30 teams of six riders take turns to pedal for 10 minutes. Tour de Habitat is held at 12pm on Saturday, March 7, 2015  at Courts Plus Fitness Center in Fargo.

All proceeds of Tour de Habitat go towards building homes for families in need in Cass and Clay Counties in ND and MN.  T-shirts will be given to all participants. Prizes will be awarded for the most money and most miles and more. Many teams even start a friendly competition with an opposing team to see who can earn the most money or pedal the farthest!

Why Should I Volunteer?

Besides getting some exercise, spend a fun Saturday afternoon leisurely pedaling and cheering on your teammates as you work together to make a lasting difference in the lives of local families.  By raising funds from family, friends, businesses and church groups, you will raise not only much needed dollars to support Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity, but also awareness in our community about the families that are in need of a place to call home.

Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity’s goal to raise $50,000 this year through Tour de Habitat to support the construction of homes with low-income families in Cass and Clay counties in 2015.  We need you to help make a difference!

How Do I Start a Team?

Here are 4 steps to start planning for the race:

  1. Form a team of six riders and designate a team captain.
  2. Make it fun! Come up with a team name, create a theme, or even challenge another team.
  3. Set Fundraising Goals: $250 minimum per cyclist ($1500 for the team). Then ask for help reaching your fundraising goal.  Ask your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, book club members, business associates, holiday card list, etc. to help you help Habitat.
  4. Register your team by February 11th, 2015 and set up your fundraising website.  If you need assistance, call LAHFH office at 218-284-5253 ext. 2
