FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MOUNTAINEER DONATES ROOMS TO 4-H GROUP
Chester, WV – June 12, 2013 — Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort is donating 15 rooms to Outspoken for WV 4H to rest up before their 250 mile bicycle ride from Chester, WV to Jackson’s Mill, WV.
Outspoken riders will rest up at Mountaineer before starting at the teapot in Chester and riding to the Grave Creek Mound in Moundsville on June 13. The riders will then head east when they hit Wetzel County. From there, they will ride through Monongalia, Preston, Taylor, Marion, Harrison and finally Lewis County. The journey will conclude on June 16 at Jackson’s Mill for the opening of the 4-H Older Members Conference, where many of the riders will stay on as campers and counselors.
“We are happy to provide a comfortable place for the riders to rest before they begin their long journey,” said Chris Kern, general manager of Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort. “This is such a great cause and we are happy to help in any way that we can.”
Outspoken for 4-H is an annual fundraising bicycle campaign to raise awareness of 4-H and promote positive youth development and healthy living. Riders who take part in the bicycle campaign are made up of 4-H members, leaders and supporters. The ride has enjoyed much success ensuring campers can attend camp at a low cost. This marks the 10th year for the annual ride, and over the past ten years, Outspoken cyclists have raised more than $50,000.
Those interested in supporting 4-H and Outspoken have three ways to contribute to the fund.
