Fundraising Tools

As you know, your commitment to the HUNDO or the inaugural 50-mile HUNDitO implies your commitment to raise at least $250. We’ve assembled several great tools for you to use to help you reach, and in many cases exceed that goal.

  1. Your official fundraising page! Click the (HUNDO Racers) link to find your name. Clicking on it will take you to your official fundraising page complete with a link you can use to send to your network of family and friends, making it easy for them to support your ride.To increase your goal, change your donation page text or see who has donated to your casue, visit your rider page CLICK HERE.

  2. Does your employer offer a corporate matching program? We’ve got the information you need to tap into this common resource. Just drop a note to [email protected] and our new race director Mike McCormack will reply with our Advance CO 501(c)(3) number and a sample donation letter to make this strategy simple and painless for your and your community-minded employer.

  3. Hate fundraising but love the course and the programs we underwrite? Write a check! It’s that easy. The fundraising minimum is $250 . . . all of which you can underwrite yourself via your fundraising page or by check at packet pickup/registration.

Wanna know where you stand? Here’s the latest HUNDO Fundraising leader board. This list reflects all rider fees and contributions.

Sample Fundraising Letter (edit and send to your family and friends!)

Hi Family and Friends!

This year, I’m racing in the Bailey HUNDO ( ) to raise money for these organizations.

  • Trips For Kids – offers mountain biking opportunities to underserved youth and changes lives "two wheels at a time"!

  • Colorado High School Cycling League – a new resource for high school students around the state to be exposed to the world of mountain bike racing–and developing the racers of tomorrow!

  • Colorado Mountain Biking Association – advocating for mountain biking in Colorado and building awesome new trails with volunteers and community members.

The Bailey HUNDO is a 100 mile mountain bike race, which includes 50 miles of single track and over 10,000 feet of climbing. 

The Bailey HUNDitO is a 50 mile mountain bike race, which includes 30 miles of single track and over 5,000 feet of climbing.

In short, a monster of a ride. The race on June 14th, which gives me the right amount of time to train for the event.

I hope you’ll considering donating $25, $50, $100 or more to these great organizations on my behalf. Your donation will help me to get out there and train harder.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.  You can find my link here.

Many thanks for your support — and don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

Many thanks and wish me luck – I hope to complete the race in under X hours.
