Title: “Ride and Run With The Stars” ~ Pinellas County Sheriff's Office
When: 12.7.2013 7:00am - 12:00pm
Location: Fort DeSoto Park in Pinellas County (All events start and finish at The Fort picnic area.)
Description: Celebrating 20 Years!

Since 1993, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office “Ride and Run With The Stars” has given hope and help to needy children and families. We have formed productive partnerships with generous community sponsors, without whom “Ride and Run With The Stars” would not have been successful. Thanks to you, we have been able to meet the needs of hundreds of families and thousands of children during the holidays and year round.

“Ride and Run With The Stars” is held on the first Saturday in December at beautiful Fort DeSoto Park. Participants enjoy cycling, running, and walking events, as well as a visit from Santa Claus, food, and a climbing wall. The funds raised through sponsorships and registrations support the Sheriff’s Christmas Sharing Project. Our agency members use the proceeds to shop for deserving families and then personally deliver the holiday packages of food, clothing and children’s toys.

We invite you to become part of our effort. Thank you for your consideration and support of “Ride and Run With The Stars” and the Sheriff’s Christmas Sharing Project. Your generosity will go a long way towards making the holidays happy for the less fortunate in our community.

Sincerely, Bob Gualtieri, Sheriff Pinellas County
