PODS of Wisconsin gears up for the 36th Annual “UPAF Ride for the Arts”
United Performing Arts Fund and PODS® Wisconsin continue charitable partnership for the annual Ride for the Arts
PODS of Wisconsin is sponsoring the 50th Anniversary recreational cycling event benefitting The Untied Performing Arts Fund Ride for the Arts sponsored by Miller Lite. This year’s ride will take place on Sunday, June 4, 2017 from 6:30 AM to 3:00 PM. UPAF is excited to offer 5 routes in total, offering more options for riders and more opportunities to hydrate.
PODS of Wisconsin will provide 9 containers to serve as Hydration Stations where they will serve water, Gatorade and food for cyclists along each route. Event volunteers will be directing riders to the large PODS containers to refuel throughout the course. Since PODS containers are large, riders will be able to easily identify the Hydration Stations as they ride through the scenic landscape of the city.
Participants are encouraged to show off their creative side and participate in the first ever costume contest for the event. People who register will also be automatically entered to win prizes proceeding the ride.
The UPAF Ride for the Arts, is one of the nation’s largest one-day recreational bike rides. UPAF works with local nonprofits to connect topnotch performing arts experiences with those who may not otherwise have access to these cultural assets. Proceeds from this event will go to support performing arts in Southeastern Wisconsin that encourages the community to create, perform, inspire and educate.
”We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with PODS for the 36th Annual UPAF Ride for the Arts,” said Deanna Tillisch, UPAF president & CEO. “Ensuring that our Riders have a safe experience is one of the most important aspects of Ride day and PODS is crucial to that positive experience.”
“PODS of Wisconsin is proud to continue our partnership with the UPAF Ride for the Arts by donating the storage and logistics essential in creating the Hydration Stations. The security and portability of our PODS containers makes them the ideal fit for the ride’s needs,” said John Hudson, managing partner of PODS of Wisconsin. “UPAF Ride for the Arts connects communities to ensure that the arts remain to be a fundamental component of education. PODS of Wisconsin is happy to donate containers to UPAF to help raise funds for these diverse and vital organizations.”
