Another successful CEM 900

Bridge on the Cannon Valley Trail, John’s favorite

This year’s 16th Annual Merchants Bank Christian Elder Memorial 900 (CEM 900) charity bicycle ride officially wrapped up June 6, with all riders completing their miles and over $35,000 raised for Kids ‘n Kinship, a non-profit mentoring organization based in Dakota County, Minnesota! Just like in 2020, this year’s ride looked a little different with riders completing their miles mostly independently or in small groups. Rides took place along many of Minnesota’s beautiful trails, and even among the red rocks in Sedona, Arizona. 

As a proud sponsor of the CEM 900, Elder-Jones would like to give a big thanks to all the donors, with special appreciation to Merchants Bank who is serving as the title sponsor for the 16th consecutive year. We all look forward to next year’s CEM 900 when we can all be back on the trails together again, and continue to help support Kids ’n Kinship.
