IMBCS Youth Entry Fee Fund 2018

Iowa Mountain Bike Championship Series had a total of 130 Youth Entry Fees during the 2017 season (up 35% from the 96 we had in 2016). Thanks to those who donated a total of $2830 last year, our successful fund raising efforts paid for all 130 of those entry fees as well as the 8% charge for charitable contributions managed through GoFundMe/Paypal!!! 

Many of our young racers come from homes where the expense of paying a mountain bike race entry fee is simply not affordable. We are asking for donations again this year to help cover the costs of the entry fees for all of our youth racers in Iowa during the 2018 season. If you have have the financial means to make a donation to help our youth here in Iowa to race their mountain bikes at one of our IMBCS events, please donate what you feel is appropriate. 

Each JUNIOR entry fee averages $20 per race, so if you want to sponsor one entry fee, two entry fees, 5 entry fees, or even more - it would help insure that our next generation of mountain bike racers here in Iowa have a chance to race their mountain bikes in our great state.

We have set a goal of raising $2830 based on the number of racers we had in the under age 18 categories during the 2017 season. The donated money will be used soley to cover youth entry fees, and the GoFundMe/Paypal 8% administration charge. IMBCS is now under the 501 (c) (3) status through IBRA, so your donation is tax deductible if you itemize.

The IMBCS Advisory Board, the parents of youth racers, and the individual host race organizations will be very thankful for your generous contributions - especially if it means seeing the determined faces of Iowa's youth out on our mountain bike trails during 2018 racing their bikes.

If you prefer to donate directly with a check, it should be made out to IBRA (Iowa Bicycle Racing Association), note "IMBCS Youth Entry Fee Fund" in the memo section of the check, and send it to:
