Here at ChatterBlast, we’ve decided to take the phrase “put the pedal to the metal” literally. With the help of some good friends, partners and clients, we are taking the plunge into a serious—and seriously fun!—new endeavor: Team ChatterBlast. Deets:
Captains: Evan Urbania, Lou Perseghin, Matthew Ray
Team MS City To Shore Page
Team Facebook Group
Fundraising Goal: $25K
Sponsors: ChatterBlast Media, duross & langel, Unite Fitness, Philadelphia BikeSmith
Team ChatterBlast is the MS City To Shore team founded by the employees of ChatterBlast Media. It is open to friends, families and even strangers! We believe we can make the greatest impact in fundraising for the MS community by working together, having fun andsharing resources.
People from all walks of life are welcome; new or experienced cyclists are encouraged tojoin; and EVERY donation makes a difference. Team members can participate in our practices and development opportunities as much (or as little) as they want. We’re so lucky to have an amazing roster of partners to support us along the way – so don’t be bashful about asking for help.
Your captains have accomplished this ride—Matt’s done it twice while Lou and Evan both participated for the first time last year—so they can offer plenty of advice on how to train, mentally prepare and get to the finish line.
So are you ready to join us?
If you still have concerns or questions, there are plenty of opportunities to meet and interact with other Team ChatterBlast members, including:
Weekly Team Rides – It’s 80 miles, and we swear to you that everyone online casino can do it! It will be a bit easier if you KNOW you can ride 10 miles! Several times a month over the summer, TCBM will get together to do a fun ride here in Philadelphia.
Fundraising Support – Team ChatterBlast has a lot of clever ideas about how YOU can fundraise. For many people, it’s not the ride that is daunting – it’s asking people to support them financially. Our parent company, ChatterBlast Media, is a communications firm so know that we will have a lot of pointers and plans that can make your ask “easier”!
Health and Spirit – duross & langel wants to support every rider in achieving their personal and team goals. Each Sunday until the ride, D L will be leading a team ride from 117 S. 13th Street throughout Center City in the bike lanes. Leaders will provide water, first aid and support. Every week there will be a check-in at duross & langel for team members (riding or not) and a free handmade gift designed for rider’s ease and comfort. All we ask is that you are on the team list and are moving forward with your training and/or fundraising commitment.
Training Support & Fitness Discount – Our partner, Unite Fitness, will give all registered members of Team ChatterBlast 15% off on any services, training, classes or apparel. Also, they will be assisting us over the summer with tips on training, stretching exercises as well as running bike clinics and a few more special supportive surprises.
Bikes! Bikes! Bikes! – Don’t have a bike? No big deal. Need some better equipment? Not a problem. All members of Team ChatterBlast can rely on our sponsorPhiladelphia Bikesmith. They are offering us a 10% discount on ALL merchandise in their store, and if you need help picking your ride or if you’ve got questions – they are the people to go to. Last year, they provided Lou with an INCREDIBLE bicycle that helped him be the first member of our team to cross the finish line. If you’re not looking for new wheels, but just need a tune-up or check-up, Bikesmith is here to provide you with as much support and service as possible. Don’t be shy about asking.
Last year we rode with Team Voyager, check out the video to see all the fun we had:
