Bike For Shelter Event Raise Money Missoula Children

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - A day full of cruzin' is set to raise thousands of dollars for children in need of a permanent home.

Set up was underway Friday afternoon at Fort Missoula for the 14th Annual Bike for Shelter event.

The day includes an 11-mile ride through a neighborhood, a Fort Missoula fun ride, and bike rodeo, all ending with a carnival. The event may be fun, but it raises some serious funds for the Watson Children's Shelter.

"It's one of our biggest fundraisers, it's one of two fundraisers. We're hoping to bring in $60,000. It is a critical part of our funding," said the development director at Watsons Children Shelter, Juliette Olejnik.

The event goes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at the Fort Missoula Watson Children's Center. It costs $15 per person, and $45 for a family or team.
