Team Microsoft welcomes all employees, contractors, and alums of Microsoft, as well as their family and friends. Come ride with us this August to help the Hutch cure cancer faster!
Please contact David Powell (david.powell -at- microsoft dot com) before registering for Obliteride 2018 if you're planning to ride again this year. We have our corporate code now for 2018 rider registration. If you're planning to do this year's Obliteride 5K walk, just register. Walkers who register by June 1 pay just $35. Walkers who are 17 or younger pay $25 to register. Minor walkers have no fundraising minimum; adults must raise at least $175.
Current Microsoft employees who donate to Obliteride can ensure donation Match requests get credited to the right team rider by browsing to http://aka.ms/give, go to your Giving Portal, tap/click Request a Match now, search for cause "Obliteride", and in the matching donation web form, put the team and rider names in the Comments section as in "Please credit rider Satya Nadella of Team Microsoft".
Fundraising is easy. Start by updating your rider page on this site. Add a photo, tell why you ride, then post a link on LinkedIn, Facebook, etc. If you're a current employee, you can leverage our fantastic Microsoft giving benefit by offering to match contributions from family/friends up to a certain amount you're comfortable giving. Each time they give, you give to your own ride, then submit a match for your gift. You'll blow past your goal in no time and the Hutch can continue to do world-class research, education, and treatment for HIV, Cancer, and more!
In 2017, 70 members of Team Microsoft rode together on every route in Fred Hutch's Obliteride and raised about $140,000. Thank you to each rider, and to all our 2017 contributors for your support! We'd love to top this great result in 2018.
