Sample Letter 2

Dear______________:

I want to share with you something I plan on doing and hope I can count on your support in making this a great success for everyone

I am going to ride in the Annual CycleAbility Challenge on June 2nd. It is a 100-mile fundraising bike tour. It is a wonderful event, which has raised over 5 million dollars since 1990.

The proceeds raised from this event will be used to benefit Special Olympics New York - Hudson Valley Region. They provide needed services for individuals with intellectual disabilities in which they learn new competencies, experience new situations and overcome obstacles.

I am committed to raise a minimum of $2,000 and I am asking for your support. Any pledge amount you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Your to Special Olympics (SONY) and return to me. I will forward my pledges as I receive them. You donation is tax deductible.

I want to thank you for sharing this experience with me! Although I will be the one riding the bike, your support and confidence will motivate and inspire me as I raise funds to help the organizations that serve these deserving people.
