Great American Bike Race (GABR) goes virtual

March 24, 2020

For 23 years, the Great American Bike Race (GABR) stationary bike race has brought people together to show kids and young adults who live with cerebral palsy and other childhood-onset conditions that permanently affect development they are not alone.

That mission is more important today than ever before. With COVID-19 present in our local communities, this year’s race looks a little different. We invite our supporters to participate in a virtual way.


20 for $20 challenge

  1. Join the challenge by signing up at gabr.sanfordhealth.org.
  2. Share a short video of you pedaling for 20 seconds and talking about why you support GABR on Facebook with the hashtags #forthekids and #gabr. The best video will win a prize!
  3. Challenge five of your friends to each donate $20 and share a link to your personal fundraising page.

On April 25, follow our virtual event on Facebook. We’ll have videos from GABR teams, star families, local businesses and so much more! We’ll also award prizes for the top fundraisers and the best video.


Why we ride

100% of every dollar raised supports kids and young adults with cerebral palsy and other conditions permanently affecting development.

To date, GABR has distributed nearly $4 million to assist families across central and western North Dakota with costs not covered by insurance.

In 2019 alone, 137 teams and more than 1,500 bikers rode for a total of 7,812 miles, helping raise more than $390,000.

With more and more families in need of these funds, your support is more important than ever before.
