The Katie Caples Foundation was formed in 1998 following the death of Katie Caples. The Foundation is committed to organ donor education to increase the number of registered organ donors and eliminate the wait for individuals in need of a transplant.
The Katie Ride was created in 2005 to raise awareness about organ donation and support the Foundation’s education program. The ride provided an opportunity to create media attention and communicate the impact Katie had as an organ donor. The community embraced the ride and the rest is history.
The fully-supported ride caters to cyclists of all abilities and includes a fun-ride, 18 miles, 36 miles, 62 miles, 100 miles and an off-road option. In 2009, a 5K and 10K walk were added as another option for participants to support the cause. All funds raised through the annual event support the Foundation’s organ donor education program.
