Team 22 Fundraising

This year, the Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo TEAM 22 fundraising program is getting a reboot! Our partners at OneShare Health are underwriting your registration, so now any ride is just $22 and in return, we are asking that you raise $150 for kids in our community.

Who Are We Fundraising For?

Minnie’s Back to School Pantry

Minnie’s Food Pantry is the leading food pantry in North Texas with a mission to provide healthy meals, educational resources and red-carpet treatment to every person that we serve. Over the last 12 years, Minnie’s Food Pantry has provided over 11 million meals to low income/food insecure families, with over 1.4 million meals distributed to 61,293 individuals in 2019 alone! Minnie’s Food Pantry is 100% community funded and every dollar donated provides 3 meals to families in need.

Rock Teen Youth Foundation

Today’s teens face innumerable challenges – and they can better meet those challenges by using the principles of personal development, goal setting, dream building, time management and a sense of purpose. RockTeen Youth foundation legerages peer mentorship to motivate kids and keep them off the streets and out of gangs. RockTeen participants learn how to build themselves up and prepare for the workforce – moving beyond their constrictive environments and towards lifelong success.

Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities Back to School Program

Each August Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities partners with the Dallas Independent School District to serve its most underprivileged at-risk children and families by providing new school uniforms, fresh fruits and vegetables for each family, children’s books, dental screenings and more. To date, 130,000 families in the Dallas community have received the benefits made possible by partner donations.

Thanks to Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities’ partners, we have been able to provide these services and more for $18 per child. Imagine what your contribution can do. Please join us in helping the children in DISD start their school year on a high note, with the support of TEAM 22 Cycling behind them.
