March 2017


Grab your Bikes!

Simpson University is excited to roll out the 2nd Annual Red Hawk Ride — a multi-distance, fun, family-friendly bicycle ride and run with routes of 6.2 (10K), 25, 50, and 100 miles. On Saturday, April 8, 2017, the ride will roll through beautiful rural northern California with majestic Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen as the backdrop. The purpose of this event is to promote healthy living in our greater Redding and Nor Cal communities while raising scholarship money for Simpson students. All-day activities on campus will include a bike swap, breakfast, catered picnic lunch, North State healthy living vendors, climbing wall, professional massage, music, and additional Red Hawk Ride swag for sale.
