The YMI Donut Ride is a bicycle-focused event organized to benefit Youth Mentoring Initiative (YMI).


The purpose of the ride is to bring together bike enthusiasts and families for a fun morning of bike riding while allowing them to do something charitable for others through donations to the Youth Mentoring Initiative. YMI provides mentoring for students by building and sustaining a mentoring community with the highest level of service, integrity, encouragement and empathy. Most importantly, they strive to continue cultivating our community and investing in our youth.
