“Wheels for Wings” is the theme for the 5th Annual Park ‘N Ride Rally where proceeds benefit Angel Flight West (AFW). AFW is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization that arranges free, non-emergency air transportation within the 13 Western states for children and adults with serious medical conditions and other compelling needs. AFW matches up volunteer pilots to people in need, enabling them to receive medical treatment and other vital care that might otherwise be inaccessible because of financial, medical, or geographic limitations. Charity Navigator has awarded AFW their coveted four-star rating for sound fiscal management. Participants in the rally will be given the opportunity to donate to the AFW both as an outright donation and via participating in our silent auction where all proceeds will go to that worthy cause. All those at the finish location turning in a score sheet will be eligible for one of our numerous door prizes while those in the Open class will be competing for gift certificates of $300 for 1st place, $200 for 2nd and $100 for 3rd.

The Park ‘N Ride Rally is an easy to complete day ride to some of the most interesting places in California and some surrounding states. We’ll have two classes, a Novice class where you only have to cover 100 miles and go to 3 bonus locations to be a finisher; and an Open class, which is for more experienced rally riders or those who like a challenge. We’ve designed this rally so it won’t matter if you are coming from San Diego, San Francisco, Utah or Arizona. You can start near home and won’t have to travel a long distance to complete the rally or be competitive.
