The goal for this event is not only fundraising, but to also raise awareness of our mission among those in the Central Texas community. The senior population in our area is the fastest growing in the country, and sadly, over 25% of those seniors and disabled adults live below the poverty line. Our organization has been around since 1982, and our un-duplicated services serve over 6,000 clients each year, providing them with the care and access they need to live safely and as independently as possible.This non-competitive ride will be structured for the young and young at heart to get their blood pumping and legs moving in honor of our clients who strive daily to maintain their independence and dignity through our services.

Family Eldercare offers many different programs to serve the needs of our clients. Our 6,000 clients are assisted through our impressive programs, such as Money Management, Guardianship, In-Home Care, Counseling, and Veteran’s Fiduciary Services. Family Eldercare’s services are greatly needed in Central Texas and a vast majority of our programs are completely un-duplicated, making our mission critically important to the health and well-being of the ever-increasing senior population in our area.
