The MACC Fund Trek 100 Ride for Hope benefits childhood cancer and blood disorder research. Everyone is welcome to join the team; members do not need to be affiliated with MCW or CHW.

For 27 years, the Trek 100 bike ride has brought hope to children battling cancer and related blood disorders. Trek Bicycle Corporation and the MACC Fund, Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc., are proud to present the 27th Annual Trek 100 Saturday, June 11. Registration is now open!
Trek Bicycle, as title sponsor of the Trek 100, together with the MACC Fund will be joining forces to support research for childhood cancer and related blood disorders. The Trek 100 is the MACC Fund's premier athletic event and one of the largest fundraising efforts for childhood cancer research in the United States. Collectively the Trek 100 has contributed over $13.1 million to support pediatric cancer research. This level of fundraising is achieved thanks to riders who acquire pledges per mile they ride, sponsors and volunteers.
The annual bike ride through Southeastern Wisconsin will begin and end at Trek Bicycle's Corporate Headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin. Trek Bicycle is located ten minutes north of I-94, off of Hwy 89. The course will loop through scenic Wisconsin farm country. This event is organized to be fun, yet challenging for riders of all levels. Select the 100, 62, 36, or 19-mile route option. All routes lead to a great experience!
The entry fee is $45 per rider by May 27 and includes an event t-shirt, pre-ride breakfast, snacks along the routes and post-ride festivities. The Trek 100 signifies a "Ride for Hope" as pledges of at least $2 per mile are required to support childhood cancer research. Great Trek wearables and bicycles reward pledge-raising efforts!
This ride provides unrivaled support for all riders, with rest stops every 7-11 miles, stocked with bottled water from Premium Waters, fresh fruit, and a variety of high-energy snacks. Trek bike mechanics, medical personnel and hundreds of support staff will be present along the route.
