TEAM VETMED & HORSE FARM HUNDRED RIDE
starting at First Magnitude Brewery: More info:
Team VetMed took on the Horse Farm Hundred bicycle ride on Sunday, Oct 23, 2016. Approximately 38 riders joined together to raise money for the Veterinary Access Endowment for the UF College of Veterinary Medicine.
A note from Dr. Alex Gallagher, Team VetMed faculty advisor:
Today we had great weather and an even better ride. I want to thank everyone who came out and rode. We had large groups doing the RUSH 55 and the Century. A great job was done by all. Congrats to those who were first time HFH riders. I also wanted to give a big shout out to Terri Parrott who led the RUSH 55 group and also sponsored a number of students for the ride.
Thank you to Jo Ann Winn for helping keep everything organized and manning our Team VetMed SAG stop in Flemington along with Debbie Courtney (who also provided the Courtney RV) and Kristi Reeves (we look forward to you joining us next year). Kudos to Ariel Robelen and Rachell Lovell for all their work with the student club the last two years and helping with recruiting. We greatly appreciate you all.
This year we raised over $20,000 for student scholarships! And we could not have done it without everyone who rode and donated. Next year is the 20th Anniversary of TeamVetMed and we are hoping for an even larger turnout. Start planning now and encourage family, friends, etc to join us. The ride will likely be Oct 22, 2017 (it is always the weekend before the UF-UGA game) unless something changes.
While this year’s HFH is over, you don’t have to wait until next Oct for a ride. We will be posting dates for the Katie’s Ride, Ride to Remember, and Frank Polack ride which all occur in the Spring (usually around April/May). Also check for rides in your area you can participate in. These are great ways to meet new cyclists and keep yourself in ride shape.
The proceeds from the 2016 ride will benefit the Veterinary Access Endowed Scholarship Fund #20571. Riders who raise over $100 are eligible for a Team VetMed custom-designed jersey.
