Frequently Asked Questions
If I collect donations in excess of the minimum $30 donation, do I still have to pay the $30 for myself?
No, the minimum amount of money we ask of each participant is $30. Please keep in mind this is a minimum pledge. Many of our participants exceed $200 in donations and in doing so have met the minimum donation of $30 per person.
To whom should the checks be made payable to?
Rock River Cancer Research Foundation, Inc. or RRCRF.
I am a donor but cannot make either the Pre-Registration Party on Friday or the Ride on Saturday, but I would still like to turn in my pledges and get my Betty Boop commemorative bandanna. How can I get one?
If you have a friend or family member that plans to be at the Ride, give them your donations and have them pick it up for you. If that does not work, please send your pledge sheet and monies (do not send cash) to: RRCRF, 1288 Summit Avenue, Suite 107, Oconomowoc, WI 53066 with a request to mail a bandanna to your home address.
Is the ride optional?
The ride is optional but highly recommended for its’ scenic beauty. If you choose not to go on the Ride, please plan to register at Wisconsin Harley-Davidson on Saturday morning and return for the post ride party.
How long is the ride and are there stops?
It is a continuous ride, approximately 50 – 70 miles throughout Southeastern Wisconsin. We recommend that you start the ride with a FULL TANK OF GAS and an EMPTY BLADDER
Can I get the route information before the ride?
For safety reasons, we do not publish the ride until after the event.
Are the driver and passenger required to have their own pledge packet?
No. The Sponsor Sheet (located in every pledge packet) has 2 categories: one for the participant (driver) and one for the passenger. The body of the Sponsor Sheet has a “Paid Donation Participant/Rider” on the left side and a “Paid Donations Participant/Passenger” on the right side. These sections are to be used to identify the donations to either Rider (left side) or Passenger (right side).
What is the Friday Night Survivors’ Parade?
The parade is a celebration ride of all cancer survivors. You do not have to be a cancer survivor to be in the parade – it is a celebration ride.
