Every mile helps a woman in need.

Ride for Women’s Lunch Place Sunday, September 24, 2017

Start and Finish at Noble and Greenough School, Dedham MA
Choose from 10, 25 or 50 mile routes or be a “virtual rider”

We have 23 amazing volunteer riders each with a goal of raising $1,000 to support
WLP’s meals program. As a team, our goal is to raise $20,000 to provide meals which will feed
hundreds of women who depend on WLP each day. Take a moment to read their stories and
see why they have committed to ride for WLP. Please consider donating to our riders and help
them reach their goal. No donation is too small.
