What better way to start the first Saturday of Fall than with a rejuvenating, rewarding bike ride through Georgetown’s beautiful countryside? It’s that time of year – the annual Texas Mamma Jamma Ride is taking a stand against cancer with a cycling event to help raise funds for 10 local nonprofits that are dedicated to helping those battling breast cancer.
Texas Mamma Jamma Ride, founded by cancer survivor, Jan Hill, is a non-profit organization committed to raising awareness and funds for those fighting breast cancer in Central Texas. The organization encourages riders, teams, and volunteers to come together each year to garner support and donations to help Central Texas families affected by breast cancer. Since the ride started in 2009, Texas Mamma Jamma has raised over 2 million dollars to help provide care, resources, and support for families fighting cancer.
The ride has something for everyone – participants are welcome to bike at their own pace and choose distances from 10 to 100 miles. If biking isn’t your thing, there are still opportunities to contribute. Volunteers can show their support by collecting donations and taking part in activities the Mamma Jamma Ride offers, including live music, face-painting and more family-friendly fun.
The ride takes place just Northwest of Austin at the Reunion Ranch,where riders can experience amazing Texas scenery and historic landscapes as they pedal down the country roads of Georgetown, all while helping to beat breast cancer.
