Great Strides Lincoln

Event Dates and Times

5/12/2018 - Starts: 10:00 AM
Antelope Park - 30th & A St Lincoln, NE
For 30 years, Great Strides – the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraising event – has supported the Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis and raise awareness for this rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe and shortens lives.

Great Strides provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together and make a difference in the lives of people with CF. The event harnesses the power of people with a shared vision and encourages collaboration, team building, and leadership, as we collectively take steps to find a cure

Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to raise funds. Your support will help accelerate innovative research and drug development, as well as advance care and advocacy. Nearly every CF drug was made possible by the Foundation and because of funds raised from Great Strides, people with CF are living longer, healthier lives and pursuing their dreams.

Wear Yellow Nebraska will be hosting the 15th Annual Wear Yellow Ride, Fun Run & Walk on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at the Strategic Air & Space Museum, Ashland, Nebraska.


Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1871336436473906/

Your participation is making a difference. 100% of our proceeds support Wear Yellow Nebraska’s cancer fighting and cancer patient assistance programs. This event specifically supports the Wear Yellow Cab Ride Program and the Wear Yellow Grant Program.

We try to keep the cost of the event simple. From the opening of registration through March 31st, it’s only $35…that’s no April Fools! In the month of April, the price goes up $5 to $40. And On May 1st we go up $5 more to $45. You can register online until midnight on Sunday, May 6th. After that date you can register at any of the packet pick up events. So there’s some incentive to register early…like two Starbuck’s worth (in case it’s chilly on the day of the event!).

From a short cruise down the highway to a scenic loop over hills and countryside, you can experience the very best of springtime in rural Nebraska.

- For those craving roads, we offer 25, 35, 45, and 60 mile options.
- For those craving less formal roads, we’re excited to offer a new 27 mile beginners gravel option, and
a 57 mile experienced gravel riders route.
- For those on two legs, we invite you to participate in the approximate 5K Fun Run & Walk.

The Adventure 5k Fun Run & Walk
With the success of the fun run and walk, we’re excited to host our non-cycling friends again. Those who come out to the Wear Yellow Ride to support their cyclists and enjoy the event can once again lace up their walking/jogging/running shoes to help their fellow Nebraskans in the fight against cancer. The Fun Run & Walk will follow an approximate 3.6 mile course from the SAC Museum through the wide open spaces of Mahoney State Park. For those who want a little competition, the event will be (non-chip) timed. A Power stop will be included at the half way point.

Everyone loves a raffle, and this year we’ve gone even bigger!

Legendary Raffle - 12:00 PM
The Legendary Raffle gets its name from the legendary items that have been up for the taking over the past years. It will start at 12:00 PM. We encourage you to browse our collection of amazing raffle packages. Raffle tickets can be purchased and placed in the package bucket of your choosing. Purchase as many raffle tickets as you like to increase your chance of winning that package.

Post Ride Event
Take your helmet off and stay awhile. Riders are encouraged to stick around after the ride for breakfast by the Pancake Man, our legendary raffle, and dozen of door prizes. Each paid registration will be granted free access to the museum following the event. If you have hungry family or friends who did not ride or run, they can purchase a breakfast from the Pancake Man for $5 each.

Your bike is in great hands. The Bike Way, and The Bike Rack are on board when you need support. They will be providing mechanical assistance to riders at various locations throughout the day as well as a couple of our great volunteers who will be riding and driving the courses to support you. This includes changing a tire and performing minor drive train adjustments to keep you rolling to the finish.
