COBYS Bike & Hike Kickstart

  • The Kickstart sets the foundation for our biggest fundraiser, getting you motivated to participate and excited to give.
  • Mark’s Farewell Tour: In the weeks before the Bike & Hike, watch for videos of Mark Cunningham, executive director, as he ponders his participation at this year’s event. Will he ride a motorcycle or bike? Will he walk? (We do know ice cream will be involved.) Stay tuned.
  • Watch for emails, Facebook and Instagram posts for the videos and donate to the COBYS Kickstart!
  • Choose COBYS Kickstart on the donation form (paper and online) to designate your donation.




What’s better than ice cream? More ice cream, more toppings and friends and fellowhip! COBYS is piling it on again when it comes to ice cream and toppings at the Bike & Hike this year. The new and improved Incredible Ice Cream Celebration continues! Create a delicious dairy dessert made with Fox Meadows vanilla and/or chocolate ice cream and your choice of toppings. What a great way to celebrate you and COBYS!

The Bike & Hike is a rain or shine event.
