How You Can Help
If you want to support Friends of the Smokies but are not able to participate in the race, here are some ways you can help:
Sponsor A Rider
Have a friend or family member racing in the Gran Fondo Asheville? Go the extra mile and make a gift in their name.
Sponsor your rider at $0.50, $0.75 or $1.00 per mile and give them the boost they need to finish strong!
Retired Smokies Deputy Superintendent and triathlete, Kevin Fitzgerald asked his friends and family to sponsor him in the race. And what’s more, if he wins his age group, they will double their donations! Follow his lead and try to keep up!
