The Owl Ride will not be held in 2017The Owl Ride, Omaha’s annual night-time bicycle ride, will not be held this year due to organizational complications. The event, held for the past seven years, is a fund-raiser for the Meyer Foundation for Disabilities, which funds programs to aid metro-area teens and adults with developmental disabilities and their families.
The Board of Directors of MFD recently learned that the event coordinator we had hoped would direct the 2017 event had another obligation. The Board felt it did not have time to seek a replacement and still do all that was needed by this spring to promote a successful and safe ride this year.
We are sorry to disappoint those who have enjoyed the Owl Ride and supported MFD’s efforts in the past. The Board is re-assessing future plans for the event and hopes it will return to its regular July weekend in 2018. If you have any questions or suggestions, or would be interested in helping plan next year's ride, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. MFD welcomes your input on how we can make this event better than ever. Thanks again for your past support of MFD.
