Pedalthon to Benefit Special Operations Warrior Foundation

by on November 09, 2018 12:19 PM

PYP Studio's fifth annual Patriotic Pedalthon will be held on Sunday, with proceeds benefiting the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, an organization that supports military special operations personnel and their families.

“We are so excited that the event this year actually falls on Veteran’s Day” said Janet Egerer, co-owner of PYP Studio. “Our community has raised over $30,000 to help veterans and their families since we started this event."

Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) is a 5013c organization that supports Special Operations service members and their families. Through initiatives such as direct grants to wounded Special Operations warriors, counseling, education and advocacy programs, and college scholarships for children of fallen Special Operations forces, SOWF recognizes the service of the men and women with the U.S Special Operations Command Unit (USSOCOM).

The Pedalthon will take place at the PYP Studio, 1748 S. Atherton St., with a revolving team-style ride led by PYP instructors. The base fee for each rider is $65 with links to donate $75or $100 as well. Participants in the event will receive a PYP Patriotic Pedalthon water bottle. Registration is available at www.thepypstudio.com. The public is welcome to attend and donations are also welcome from those who choose not to ride.

The event will kick off with sign-in and set-up at 7:30 a.m.

“This event is important to me,” Egerer said. “My husband and my brothers and my father and grandfather all served our country. My stepson is currently serving in the Marine Corps. I spent a significant portion of my career working in military health and fitness programs. We would love to break last year’s record for monies sent to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.”

Music for the event will be provided by Nittany Entertainment. Food will be provided by Gigi’s Southern Table.
