The 23rd Anniversary Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America was a big success thanks in part to the generous outpouring from fans in Raymond who helped support the cause when the Ride visited on May 18. The Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America today announced its 23rd Anniversary Ride raised $1.3 million – the most funds raised in a single year since 2008. Funds raised directly benefit Victory Junction – a camp dedicated to providing life-changing camping experiences for children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses. Since the Ride’s inception in 1995, more than 8,085 children have attended Victory Junction at no cost to their families. And this year, the Ride will send 100 kids to summer camp at Victory Junction. Funds were gathered from local fans along the route, as part of the Ride’s “Small Change. Big Impact.” program, as well as donations made by generous sponsors, organizations, and the riders themselves. The Ride visited eight states in seven days, traveling from Portland, Oregon on May 13, arriving in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on May 19.
