(April 12, 2019) – Aspire’s Associate Board hosted its second annual Battle of the Bikes fundraising event at Studio Three on April 12th. Together, thanks to the support of over 400 attendees and numerous sponsors and donors, they raised over $27,000 for Aspire’s programs – a new record! 

The event was a dual cycling competition hosted by the junior boards of Aspire and Autism Speaks. The goal was to harness the collective fundraising power of participants, donors, supporters, and their networks to raise money for and highlight the amazing work of both nonprofits. Together, the two organization raised a total of over $50,000 for their respective programs!

A big thank you to Studio Three for hosting us, Autism Speaks for partnering with us, and to our amazing Associate Board of young professionals for all their hard work putting the event together!
