‘Ride for the Future’ scholarship run scheduled for April 30

Register by April 15 to guarantee a t-shirt

Garden City Community College Department of Public Safety’s 2022 Ride for the Future scholarship fundraiser is set for Saturday, April 30.

This annual event is a community-engaging motorcycle & street-legal vehicle ride full of fun, food, and support for a great cause.

Early registration is encouraged, and registration paperwork is available at https://bradleysisk.wixsite.com/rideforthefuturegccc.

Pre-registration by April 15th guarantees a t-shirt.

Participants can also register on the day of the event, starting at 8:30 a.m. at the John Collins Vocational building parking lot, located on the GCCC campus at 801 Campus Drive.

First vehicle out at 9:30 a.m., last vehicle out at 9:45 a.m. The route is GCCC to Scott City to Leoti to Deerfield to GCCC.

A hamburger/hotdog lunch will start at 12:30 p.m. followed by drawings at 1 p.m.

All riders will have the opportunity to network with the Emergency Responders who serve as hosts along the route as well as with the DPS students who are impacted directly by the funds raised during the event.

GCCC DPS students who volunteer during the event also gain valuable educational experience at the Ride, while aiding in the management of safety at a community event, interacting with their community supporters, and observing the Emergency Responders volunteering alongside them.

The event is sponsored by the GCCC Endowment Association and proceeds go towards the GCCC Endowment Scholarship fund to benefit Criminal Justice, EMS, and Fire Science students.

Since the first ride in 2008, the Ride for the Future event has raised over $45,000 for DPS scholarships at GCCC.
