What is included in the Fathers for the Fatherless Registration Fee?

Your registration includes your F4F cycling kit (jersey + bib shorts), event planning, ride logistics and snacks at four team stops during your 100-mile ride.

are scholarships available to help with the registration cost or the purchase of a bike? 

We are thankful to be able to offer an F4F Scholarship Fund to assist with the registration cost and/or additional assistance towards the purchase of a bike. These scholarships will be approved based on the following three criteria: 1) An explanation of your current financial need 2) Availability of scholarship funds 3) Your commitment to join the F4F team is attempting to fundraise $750 for the fatherless.

More details on the 2023 scholarship process coming soon.

Is Fathers for the Fatherless only for dads?

In 2022 we expanded the mission of F4F beyond dads to include ALL MEN.

We believe that all men are called to be fathers to the fatherless, and we’re excited to invite more men into this vision.

You must be 18 year old to ride with our team

I no longer want to participate, can I get a registration refund?

All registrations are non-refundable and non-transferrable.

What about my fundraiser?

After completing your F4F registration, you’ll receive instructions to set-up your Venture Miles Fundraiser. This invitation email to get your F4F Fundraiser set-up will be sent out approximately 10 to 12 weeks before your F4F ride.

how/when do I order my f4f Cycling kit (jersey + bib shorts)?

After registering to join the 2023 F4F team, we will email you when the F4F Pactimo Store is ready for your order. This year we will be offering a monthly opportunity to submit your order starting March 15th, 2023. You will be emailed an F4F 2023 Team Member code that covers the full price of the Pactimo F4F Continental Jersey and Bib Shorts. We direct ship the F4F kits to you for added convenience and we ask our F4F team members to cover the shipping cost.

why do you ask the f4f team to fundraise $750 for the fatherless?

F4F exists to help the fatherless. After a 7% transaction fee (credit card processing + the fundraising app expenses) we donate 93% of the fundraising to our GLOBAL and LOCAL partners who are directly serving the fatherless. Here's a short video that shares the impact of Venture (our global partner).
