KING RIDGE FOUNDATION'S MISSION IS TO GIVE AT-RISK YOUTH THE CHANCE THEY DESERVE TO SUCCEED IN LIFE. THEY SUPPORT SMALLER ORGANIZATIONS THROUGHOUT THE US WHO FOCUS ON UNIQUE YOUTH NEEDS IN THEIR COMMUNITY.
To-date, King Ridge Foundation has raised more than $3,000,000 for at-risk youth and recently led a campaign to restore the community it lives in through the Sonoma Pride fundraiser. In November of 2017, Peter Sagan joined #RideForSonomaPride which contributed more than $40,000 to that end.
Adventure Risk Challenge
Adventure Risk Challenge is the official non-profit partner of Sagan Fondo Truckee Dirt Edition.
Adventure Risk Challenge (ARC) is a youth development nonprofit that integrates academic and outdoor programming for low-income and at-risk high school youth in the Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada, bolstering their skills in literacy, leadership, and life. ARC exposes these deserving youth to outdoor adventure experiences such as backpacking, biking, kayaking and rock climbing, and incorporates relevant academic instruction and leadership development into the outdoor activities. Following these transformational experiences ARC supports each individual participant through mentoring, college access support, and employment opportunities.
"Adventure Risk Challenge is extremely honored to be partnering with a mission-driven cycling event this spring. As a result of Bike Monkey's support and our involvement in the Peter Sagan Fondo, ARC will be able to purchase much-needed outdoor gear for summer courses, offer more weekend adventure retreats during the coming academic year, and mentor additional at-risk youth into college. Dozens more youth will be transformed through ARC programs this year as a result of of this partnership, and it's difficult to find the words to express our gratitude! On behalf of all our youth participants, THANK YOU!"
