Fit4Kids is proud to be a charity partner for the Sports Backers Anthem Moonlight Ride scheduled this year on August 4.

This is an awesome untimed bike ride that begins at 8:00 p.m. at Sports Backers Stadium.  It’s the perfect family-friendly event and Richmond moms and dads always enjoy participating.

The event features a “Full Moon” (17 mile) route and a “Half Moon” (8 mile) route through Lakeside, Bryan Park and the near West End making it fun for everyone. ‘Wave starts’ will help alleviate course congestion, and each wave is limited to 450 participants. There is a 3-hour course limit.

Best of all, kids and adults will enjoy lots of fun too. Live music from Farm Vegas, a post-ride party and plenty of fun awaits cyclists at the finish line.  Prizes will be awarded for “Best Costume” and “Best Decorative Lights” in group and individual divisions.

As the official charity of the Anthem Moonlight Ride, Greater Richmond Fit4Kids is a local non-profit organization created to improve the health and wellness of children by increasing physical activity and promoting healthy eating.  The organization is focused on improving children’s health and reducing childhood obesity.

What better way to promote health and fight obesity than to take a moonlight bike ride?
