Support the Century Ride
Your generous contributions to the Lime Connect Century Ride presented by Bloomberg will directly support the following:
- Research: As a leader in the disability space, Lime Connect will spearhead research into critical points of impact for individuals with disabilities, with a focus on early career (K-12) and collegiate students. Our research will be used to identify essential next steps to ensure long-term success.
- High School Scholarships: Lime Connect is proud to offer our first-ever Pathways Scholarship to support a smooth transition into college for high-achieving high school students with disabilities. A portion of the proceeds from the Century Ride goes directly toward supporting this scholarship.
- Growing Our Network: The Lime Network consists of over 15,000 students, professionals, and veterans with disabilities across the United States and Canada. Funds raised will support the Lime Connect programs, training, resources and events available to Network members.
