- Nominate team lead(s) by May 18.
- Encourage department staff to sign up to ride, volunteer at the event or make a donation in any amount to the UC Health/UC team.
- Win door prizes, to be raffled off everyday from May 29 through June 8.
- Enjoy a free lunch if your team wins.
Those who have signed up to ride or donated to the team will automatically be entered to win door prizes. Giveaways include yoga mats, stainless steel tumblers, book bags, duffle bags and more.
