16th Annual Merchants Bank Christian Elder Memorial 900
The 16th Annual Merchants Bank Christian Elder Memorial 900 (CEM 900) begins this Monday, May 24, of which Elder-Jones is a proud sponsor. This charity bicycle ride typically covers 900 kilometers in nine days, ridden by teams along Minnesota’s beautiful trails. Due to covid, this year’s ride will be a little different, with participants riding on their own over 9 days, rather than all riding together.
What is not different is that all money raised from the ride will benefit Kids ‘n Kinship, a non-profit mentoring organization based in Dakota County, Minnesota. The mission of Kids ‘n Kinship is to provide friendships to children ages 5-16 in need of positive role models.
This year, the CEM 900 intends to cross the $500,000 total mark that has been raised over 16 years of riding to benefit Kids ’n Kinship. For additional information or to donate, please visit www.cem900.com.
