Fundraising Event Updates
As August and September draw near, our TEAM LIFE Ride, Golf Scramble, and Virtual Benefit Event are right around the corner! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these events have been adapted to meet the CDC guidelines and ensure the safety of our participants and guests. We are so thankful to still be able to hold these events and continue fundraising to support BsideU For Life’s ministry, so we can continue to serve women in crisis pregnancies well. Here is all the information and modifications about the upcoming events:
TEAM LIFE Ride to Save Lives
The Ride to Save Lives is happening on Saturday, August 8. Check-In will begin at 7:30 a.m. at BsideU For Life’s main location, 701 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd., and kick-off will start at 8:30 a.m. We’re offering three different biking routes, including 10-mile, 28-mile, and 53-miles options. Both bikes and motorcycles are welcome to join! To sign up to be a rider, click here!
If you’re not interested in biking, volunteers and rider sponsors are also needed. Click here to sponsor a rider, and partner with us in reaching our goal of $45,000 for our ministry!
Rick Bordas Scramble For Life
Our annual Rick Bordas Scramble For Life is now scheduled for Monday, August 17 at Persimmon Ridge. Early Bird Registration is still available until Friday, July 17. Signing up early will enter you into a drawing for a foursome at Lake Forest Golf Course. Click here to register your team!

To ensure the safety of our golfers and other attendees, we are taking the necessary precautions to meet the CDC health guidelines and maintain a secure and fun environment. When guests arrive at the event, registration tables will be spread out to allow for social distancing. Rather than having a shot gun start like we’ve done previously, this year, we’re having three different start times (TBD, watch our website for details), this way teams can come to the course a few minutes before their scheduled slot. Dividers will also be provided in each golf cart, so they can safely seat two riders. All of these new adjustments will ensure that the event runs safely and smoothly.
Virtual Benefit Event
This year’s 32nd Annual Benefit will be a virtual event held on Tuesday, September 29. To maintain safety and social distancing guidelines, the banquet will be an online event. More details to come about the livestream soon–watch our website. If you’re interested in finding out more information on how to become a sponsor for the benefit event, contact Leisa Ray at Leisa.R@BsideU.org or (502) 589 – 9400 (ext. 102).
Our Keynote speaker for the banquet is Scott Klusendorf, and he will be interviewed by the Executive of the River Foundation, Dan Lewis. As President of the Life Training Institute, Scott is the author of The Case For Life: Equipping Christians to Engage the Culture and Stand For Life: A Student’s Guide For Making the Case and Saving Lives. His presentations have been featured by Focus Family, Truth That Transforms, and American Family Radio.
Thank you for your faithful support in helping BsideU For Life’s ministry continue. We hope to see you at our TEAM LIFE Ride, Scramble For Life, and Virtual Benefit Event this year!
