Shop and Eat in Barrington for a Great Cause!

60010 Shops the Ride on October 4th and 5th. Shop or Eat at one of the participating merchants in Barrington and a portion of the sale goes back to to support Ride for 3 Reasons.

Since September 6th, Bob Lee has been pedaling his way down the West Coast.  This Ride for 3 Reasons is a solo bike ride which will take him approximately 2,000 miles from Canada to Mexico, through rural towns, rolling hills, and beautiful coastal areas.  All the way, Bob is focused on the goal which is to raise $1 million dollars for 3 important causes- Cancer, ALS, and Hospice. 

With approximately $157k needed to reach Bob’s goal, local Barrington merchants have rallied to help Bob.  On October 4th and 5th, a shopping event, 60010 Shops the Ride, will take place in Barrington with local merchants contributing a portion of their sales back to Ride for 3 Reasons. All you need to do is shop and eat in Barrington at select merchants and you’ll be contributing to Bob’s efforts! 

Bob is doing the hard work so let’s help out by supporting local businesses!  If you have been thinking about making a purchase at one of the supporting merchants, these are the days to do it!  Gather your friends or office co-workers and order from one of these great restaurants or take out the family for dinner!  Let’s make this opportunity count!  Be sure to make note of the specific times and turn in the flyer at the time of your purchase so all your dollars go to Ride for 3 Reasons.  Print extra flyers and learn more about Ride for 3 Reasons at www.3reasons.org.
