Phinney’s (aka Phinney’s Friends, Inc.), a nonprofit that helps low-income people in Massachusetts keep their pets, is gearing up for its 8th annual Phinney’s Ride–a biennial fundraiser to help those living with HIV and AIDS care for their pets.
Up until 2021, Roger Peduzzi, a recently retired veterinarian, and his team of passionate bicyclists, led the charge for raising funds through Phinney’s Ride. To celebrate the nonprofit’s 25th anniversary, Phinney’s invites everyone to participate by performing any type of ride between September 1 and November 1, 2021, and tag @PhinneysFriends and use #phinneysride on social media when sharing photos of their rides.
The registration fee for Phinney’s Ride is $20 with a pledge to raise $200 or more. Individuals can also form teams with family, friends, and coworkers. And, everyone who registers will get a personalized web page with photos and their bio, which they can direct their ride sponsors to.
This year also marks the introduction of the Phinney’s Ride “Couch Potato Hero Certificate,” which gives those who don’t want to ride the option of showing their support with a donation of $100 or more.
Corporate sponsorship opportunities are available ranging from $250 to $5,000, and details on sponsorship packages can be found at shorturl.at/deEGO.
