Help fight hunger in Ascension Parish!

Help fight hunger in Ascension Parish!

"One person can make a difference and every person should try." John Fitzgerald Kennedy

On October 9th, friends, family and Fusion Health and Fitness in Prairieville will team up to help fight hunger in Ascension Parish by hosting the ONE CAN Make a Difference Charity Ride. The goal of this ride is to donate canned goods and raise money through rider fees to give to the food pantry at the Fellowship Center in Gonzales.

Please join us for a day of "giving" to our community, fun fellowship with family and friends and great cycling. 100% of your entry fee will go towards purchasing food for the Fellowship Center located in Gonzales.

Event Cost: $25 per rider. Kids are free if they bring 10 cans of nonperishable food items each! Additionally, for every 10 cans donated, riders will be included in a drawing for special prizes. Special prizes donated by 1 Can sponsors!
