Making an impact on local kids pays community dividends in a big way.
All proceeds from Pedal Hilton Head Island benefit the Boys & Girls Club.
The Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island provides outstanding after-school, summer education and enrichment programs. Over 250 children and teens use the club daily, and for many of them, it serves as a point of stability and safety in their uncertain world.
Specifically, the club serves children from low-income families: 63% of Club Members (children) are from families living in poverty, 71% do not have health insurance, 54% live in single parent households and many do not have a home to call their own. By riding with us this September, you will enable the Club to continue to do impactful work for local children and teens.
In addition to individual rides, participants can choose from exciting team options, pledges and our signature Pedal For A Kid Challenge. Your contribution will enable the Club to strengthen its programs, facilities and help us provide a Positive Place for Kids. Help kids in our area to have a brighter future by choosing one following fundraising options below.
This coveted challenge is taken by many of our dedicated riders each year. Those individuals who reach $250 or more (either through donations or by their own wallet) towards their ride will receive a commemorative cycling jersey and a bib with a picture of child they are riding for.

Get Social – Get Creative - Team Rides for 10 or More
Build a network within your neighborhood, business, school, with community partners, friends and alumni by creating a social or corporate team. Assembling teams is easy. Each team has a Captain responsible for recruiting team members. Team members all fill out a registration form so they can be registered as a member of the team. Team members provide a check for the registration and they are asked to donate additional funds to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island. These additional donations can be checks from neighbors, friends, or other people to support the team and the individual riders.
And what would a team be without a challenge? We’ll have prizes for Best Dressed, Most Funds Raised, Tacky Whacky and more! Check out our facebook event for an updated list of challenges (and prizes) this summer, along with special swag JUST for the team captains!
