Gran Fondo

Sign up now for the September Gran Fondo walking, cycling, horseback riding and color fun run events, all to benefit the Walla Walla, WA cancer patient special needs fund.

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.

Sponsored by:

Fly Walla Walla First

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.).

More than 620 people came together for the 2014 event, raising over $32,000 for the Cancer Special Needs Fund.
