Register Online Now

Saturday, September 19

Registration start times:

  • Metric Century Ride: 7 a.m.
  • 35-mile Crush Ride: 7:30 a.m.
  • Horseback Ride: 9 a.m.
  • Color Fun Run: 9:30 a.m.
  • Walk of Strength: 10 a.m.

The Gran Fondo (the Great Ride) raises money for local cancer patients: a gas card for the dad who can't afford to drive to treatment, a wig for the woman who's just lost her hair or a gift card for the neighbor who can't afford his medicine.

Participants choose from several fun events--walking, cycling, horseback riding or a color fun run. The event begins at the Walla Walla Community College Dietrich Dome and ends with a free celebratory lunch for all participants (served 11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.).

For more photos from the event, check out the Providence St. Mary Foundation Facebook page.
