Encourage Activity Through Cycling at the 2nd Annual Beach Babe Bicycling Classic July 15, 2012
Long Beach, CA -- July 2, 2012 -- The 2nd Annual Beach Babe Bicycling Classic has selected HealthCorps, the high-school based national health movement, founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz, renowned heart surgeon and two-time Daytime Emmy Award-winning host of “The Dr. Oz Show,” and his wife Lisa Oz, as its Charity of Choice.
The ride begins at 8:00 a.m. on July 15th and winds along the beautiful beach bike trails from Long Beach to Huntington Beach. The Beach Babe Classic is open to the public to register and will serve to raise funds and awareness for HealthCorps, which this fall, will add Cabrillo High School to its 30 schools in California and 70 schools nationwide.
The July 15th cycling event is limited to 500 participants and welcomes women of all ages and abilities. The route distances of 15 or 36 miles have catered rest stops, roving mechanics to keep riders rolling, and enthusiastic Beach Bums to cheer the ladies along. "I am looking forward to joining with my friends from Southern California and the California Endowment to help raise awareness and funds for the HealthCorps’ high school mentoring program," said Janae Noble, CEO of Noble Pursuit. "I am also excited about the opportunity to witness the Beach Babe Bicycling Classic’s 36-mile route as hundreds of women ride together with their fellow Southern California cycling enthusiasts!"
All funds donated to the Beach Babe Bicycling Classic’s official charity partner, HealthCorps will be used to help support its new program at Cabrillo High School. Participants will have the opportunity to earn gifts and prizes by raising additional funds for HealthCorps with Crowdrise, the online giving program and the Team Fundraising page. “We are so grateful to Noble Pursuit for this opportunity,” said Michelle Bouchard, President of HealthCorps. “The awareness provided by this ride is a wonderful way to introduce HealthCorps to Long Beach. Funds raised will allow our Coordinator and students at Cabrillo High School to take health and wellness activities throughout the community.”
