SEBASTIAN – The Sebastian Bike Bar-A-Thon raised $6,500 this past Saturday for the Marine Resources Council.
The council is a non-profit organization that helps to restore the fish and wildlife resources of the Indian River Lagoon.
“I’m a little bit blown away. Together we raised over $6500,” Chris Russell, who runs the Bike Bar-A-Thon, told Sebastian Daily.
“I’m still in a bit of shock. I figured that we could hit our $4000 goal but never imagined that we’d blow it out of the water like we did,” Russell said.
Bicyclists started at Pareidolia Brewing Co. and rode to Mash Monkeys Brewery Co., Capt’n Butcher’s, Capt. Hiram’s Resort, Crab Stop of Sebastian, Earl’s Hideaway Lounge, Pelican Pub, and Tiki Bar & Grill.
Sebastian’s Great Bike Bar-A-Thon is a Pub Crawl to raise funds and awareness about saving the Indian River Lagoon. The fun-filled charity event was open to the general public. All funds for the Marine Resources Council are brought in through the event’s t-shirt sales.
The next Bike Bar-A-Thon will be sometime in late April 2019 to benefit HALO Rescue No-Kill Shelter.
