Congratulations Team xMinds
on Bike to the Beach 2023!
Congratulations to Team xMinds on raising over $55,000 to support xMinds in its mission to improve education for autistic students in Montgomery County, MD! The Bike to the Beach ride may be over, but there's still time to donate. The more donations, the more impact we can make. That means MORE grants for teachers to purchase classroom supports for autistic students, MORE educator trainings, and MORE resources to help families with autistic kids — all provided free of charge to allow access to all who need them.
A heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported Team xMinds on this journey. We appreciate your donations, your volunteerism, and your pedal power! Our 15 cyclists rode up to 100 miles in sweltering heat, all to raise funds for xMinds. Another eight volunteers set up and staffed a rest stop at Mile 75, feeding and cheering on hundreds of riders from different autism organizations in the Washington, DC. and Baltimore areas. Additional volunteers helped fundraise and organize this event, helping to make it a great success.
It was an incredible feeling of community to be biking alongside the other teams, each doing their part to help autistic individuals. We felt a collective sense of success when we finally crossed the finish line in Dewey Beach, DE, knowing that together, we were making a difference.
Special thanks to team captain Patrick Quigley, communications chairs Sue Keisler, Melanie Carlos, and Monica Martinez, and rest stop coordinator Marci Skigen.
Thank You to Our Generous Sponsors:
We had so much fun at Bike to the Beach 2023 that we plan to do it all again next year! Team members meet throughout the spring for optional training rides — which are also great social events. For more information, contact us at email@example.com.
