IMAGINATION RIDE 2021
The Virtual IMAGINATION RIDE will raise funds for the Imagination Library book gifting program which mails free books to registered children from birth to age five in Stephenson, Jo Daviess & Carroll Counties. We currently have 2,490 children registered in the Imagination Library, and our numbers continue to grow!
Just as there is no limit to a child's imagination, there is also no limit to how far we can grow, and we need YOU!
Ride your way!
Participants can choose the riding level that best suits them and safely ride at their convenience. Choose one of our suggested routes below, or create one of your own & ride anytime September 4, 2021 through October 3, 2021
What does it cost?
Registration is donation based - you choose what you would like to pledge towards the United Way of Northwest Illinois' Dolly Parton Imagination Library!
After you fill out your registration form, please head over to the donation section below to make a pledge. All money raised during this event goes directly to funding the UWNI's Dolly Parton Imagination Library for the children registered in our local communities
One boy & one girl who participate in this year's Imagination Ride will be entered to win a new bike! Register below!
Are you the Fastest Kid in Town?
All kids who participate in the Kids Races at the Lincoln-Douglas 5K are also entered into the drawing!
