This ride’s primary purpose is to help John Morgan Harrison and Matthew Harrison raise money for their cause: The American Diabetes Association. John Morgan is a Type 1 diabetic and will be riding his bicycle in the ADA Tour de Cure to support the research for a cure for diabetes. His brother Matthew and their dad will be riding along with him on the Dog Pound Team as they attempt a metric century (100K).

How does one enter this “Seven-Eleven” ride? It’s easy, all it takes is a donation to the American Diabetes Association in the name of Team Harrison. This donation is tax deductible and can be done directly via the American Diabetes Association website (use the below button so the Harrison clan gets credit):
After doing this please send an email to: Seven-Eleven (at) BigMoneyRally.com and give your basic info. It’s that easy, you can then consider yourself a participant in this rally and you will be sent a packet of information.
A few basic details can be found below:
06:11am (Reno Time) May 11, 2012 (That is 07:11am local time)
Salt Lake City Utah
The information pack that will be sent to all Seven-Eleven participants will contain Hotel information, discount codes, and all related details. Big thanks to the MERA folks who have leveraged their relationships with the Hotel property for the benefit of Seven-Eleven riders. You are under no obligation to use this Hotel, but it does make good sense and there will be some simple activities.
The route is a good one: 700Miles and you have only 11Hours to do it. Scenic, yet open -and the three mandatory checkpoints that will be quick and easy. Because of these three strategically placed checkpoints, there will be no need for odomoter check or rider documentation. Riders will be quickly checked in and out of each checkpoint. Riders will likely see a fun theme and familiar faces at these checkpoints. Again, all details will be in the participant’s information pack.
Certificate: This is a one-time-only ride. The people who finish this ride, will be the only ones to ever do so. Hence, we have gone to considerable efforts to secure a high-quality certificate which will be provided to all who finish. No doubt you’ll be the envy of all of your friends with this certificate. Trust us, it’s unique. Here is a sample mock-up of what it *might* look like:
"LDComfort will donate a complete set of long distance riding undergarments for the person who contributes the most to the Harrison boys, AND finishes the "Seven-Eleven" ride. That will include a pair of riding tights, a long sleeve riding top, a set of cool sleeves and two helmet liners. If you are not able to ride the "Seven-Eleven" but still want to donate, you can always pile on a few dollars to a buddy that is riding the event just to help them raise their total."
This is a very awesome contribution by LDComfort, and if you’d like to donate to this great cause but can’t ride in it -let us know which rider you’d like your donation to fall under.
