Rally. Ride. Raise.
The Expresso Rally for the Y is a fundraiser put on by Interactive Fitness the creators of the Expresso interactive bikes. The Wadsworth Y participates all during the month of February to help raise money for the Annual Campaign. There are multiple ways to participate in the Rally. You can become a participant by riding the Expresso Bikes and earning $0.10/ mile from Expresso or you may pledge per mile or one-time donation to your favorite rider.
You can sign up to be a rider or donate to a current rider here.
When supporting a rider first you go to the Expresso website and make your pledge/one time donation pledge. This helps keep track of the Rally’s efforts. Expresso will then redirect you to the YMCA’s donation portal if you choose one time donation. Once you are at the donation portal there is no need to create an account or log in then you can fill out your information and complete your transaction.
If you choose to donate per mile, you will be sent an email at the end of the Rally stating how many miles your rider completed and how much you will donate based on how much you pledged per mile.
Your contributions to the Annual Campaign through the Rally will go toward transforming lives. The Annual Campaign helps support programs like Safety Around Water, Diabetes Prevention, Playground Group and Summer Day Camp. It also provides scholarships to individuals and families who might not be able to afford a membership. The Y strives to not turn people away due to their inability to pay.
