    Open

    Not to make us happy. Be the rider you want to be! We don't care if you ride in The Tour or ride on the trail.

  • How do I know kids are really being helped?
    Open

    Any one specific kid? Can't do. But CMNH will tell you how the money is helping kids, and we can show you that your money is indeed getting to CMNH.

  • Where does my money go?
    Open
    • Your remits go to the hospital you select in My Page. Or, you may select "General Fund" for CMNH to decide how to use your donation.
    • All monies collected go into the TeamACE Foundation interest-free checking account in the Northgate branch of Sterling Bank in Seattle, WA before they are dispersed to CMNH.
  • Do centuries count toward mileage?
    Open

    Of course. Every mile you ride counts.

  • Remits
    Open

    TeamACE will prompt you every time you reach your 500-mile mark. That's $25 in nickels. Please remit promptly, though there is no specific deadline to do so. You may continue to report miles until you do remit; the system will just keep reminding you. PayPal does take a cut, so if you want the full $25 to go to your hospital then please send us a check. After you make payment, we match that with the current Team Sponsor's $25, in honor of your riding effort!

  • What if I don't ride very much? What if I don't even ride 500 miles in a year?
    Open

    That's ok. Just ride what you want and report it when you do. TeamACE will keep track and let you know when you hit that magic 500-mile mark! Time to celebrate that day!

  • Can I donate to other causes, or just CMNH?
    Open

    No, not yet. There may be that option in the future as the team grows. For now, it's all for the kids!

  • May I deduct my remits from my federal taxes?
    Open

    Yes! We email a receipt to you after each remit.

  • What do I do with the TeamACE FaceBook page?
    Open

    Please Friend Us so you receive announcements and can share stories and information with the whole team.

  • What do the sponsors do?
    Open

    Sponsors support your riding for the benefit of sick kids. They benefit from the exposure they receive every time you report your miles. Please visit their websites and consider purchasing their products.

  • Where do the TeamACE members live?
    Open

    All across the U.S. It's a national team.

  • May I remit before I hit the 500 mile increment?
    Open
