Cyclists will pedal a metric century (62+ miles) of moderately challenging terrain, to rolling hills, to the beautiful shoreline vistas of Mystic, CT. Your enthusiasm and commitment to this deserving cause will bring you and your donor’s mutual fulfillment in supporting your efforts!

With activities beginning Friday night at the Arthur C.Luf Children’s Burn Camp, with dinner and entertainment and overnight opportunity for the earliest registrants, as an AngelRider, you will experience first hand the charm of this Camp.

Donors and Supporters

Starting in 2019, AngelRide will be supporting the Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp, operated by the CT Burns Care Foundation.  The Camp is a safe, natural outdoor environment for kids ages 8 to 18 from around the world who have survived life-altering burn injuries.

The Camp encourages camaraderie coupled with physical and social activities. Activities are designed to help campers overcome anxieties, rebuild their self-worth, develop and enhance their physical skills, and allow them to move psychologically beyond their scarring and burn injuries.

All children attend free of charge. All expenses for lodging, meals, arts/crafts, activities and programs are paid for by the Foundation.

Most of these children have never seen a campground or enjoyed an overnight camp-out, let alone the many other camp activities which include campfires, hiking, fishing, archery, boating, and a challenging ropes course.

Active and retired firefighters from Fire Departments along the East Coast, medical personnel trained in treating burns, adult burn survivors, and caring individuals from many walks of life create the team of counselors that support the young survivors. All counselors serve on a volunteer basis.

No child is turned away.

You can be a part of it all by becoming or supporting one of our amazing Riders or Volunteers. Use the “Search Participants” or “Search Teams” functions on the left and make your donation today!
