A Richmond caravan is heading down to Half Moon Bay this Sunday for a very worthy cause and you’re invited. There’s one catch though: you MUST wear pink.
Soulful Softball Sunday will host its “6th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Bike/Horse Ride Experience,” Sunday, Oct. 4 in Half Moon Bay. Participation is free. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
After enjoying some free coffee and donuts, the group will leave Nicholl Park, 3230 Macdonald Ave. in Richmond, at 9 a.m. sharp. Organizers will load bikes onto a U-Haul truck, while participants drive themselves or caravan down to Half Moon Bay.
Upon arrival, the group will enjoy a 7.5 mile round trip bike ride along the beautiful Half Moon Bay Coastal Trail. Those preferring to walk the trail instead of ride it are welcome to do so.
As part of the event, the group will also enjoy a free catered lunch featuring the following menu selections: Smoked BBQ Chicken, Southern Style Greens, Auntie Marion’s Candied Yams, Macaroni & Cheese, Dinner Rolls and Infused Water. There will also be a raffle with gift cards, prizes and baskets.
Alcohol and drugs are not permitted at the event and masks and social distancing will be required, per organizers.
“We have lost thousands of human lives to Breast Cancer in Richmond, California. Soulful Softball Sunday is dedicated in eradicating and educating the public about this deadly disease,” said Rodney Alamo Brown, founder of Soulful Softball Sunday.
