Support the Baroudeur 

Whether you ride, make a gift or do both, your participation helps Warriors by raising money for scholarships and the university's Helping Individuals Go Higher (HIGH) Program, which supports students whose unstable housing situations threaten their dreams of earning a degree. We're excited to partner again with WarriorFunder, Wayne State's official crowdfunding platform, and our sponsor Detroit Bikes to help make a greater impact. We encourage you to consider making a greater impact by donating or helping us fundraise — any amount can make a difference! 

Detroit Bikes has generously donated four Sparrow commuter bicycles in support of the event. As the lightest single speed in its class, the Sparrow weighs just 22 pounds. Learn more about the Sparrow.

Additionally, we are excited to recognize those who reach certain fundraising goals through WarriorFunder. We are pleased to offer the following incentives for individuals who donate or raise certain amounts before 11:59 p.m. Saturday, July 23:

We will also host a raffle at the post-ride party, and three bicycles will be awarded in a drawing on campus at 2:30 p.m. The day of the ride, raffle tickets will be available for $10, or you can buy a bundle of six raffle tickets for $50. Purchases can be made with cash or through Venmo at the designated raffle tent.
