Unlike a basic link share, Facebook Fundraiser posts are rich and dynamic posts that motivate more friends to donate quickly. Posts through a Facebook Fundraiser include an image, story, thermometer, donate button and more. You can easily invite all of your friends, and they will see updates from the fundraiser, as well as from other friends who donate. Your friends are also encouraged to invite and share with their friends, which means you may receive gifts from people you don’t even know who were moved by your story! Facebook also provides you with a quick and easy way to check your progress – including donations that come in through your Empire State Ride page or your Facebook Fundraiser.
Because the personal page does not allow for public display rules the donor could set on Facebook (e.g., friends only, friends of friends, only me), all donors display on the personal page as “Facebook Fundraiser.” Please contact us at 716-845-3179 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to update the name on the honor roll to your name.

The 2019 Empire State Ride mileage will be finalized in January 2019.
In 2018, the average daily mileage was about 77 miles. The total mileage was 546. Our shortest day is 54 miles and our longest is 91.6. You can always ride a shorter daily distance by utilizing the SAG buses, or register for the custom route option if you want to participate but are not available for the entire week.
