PedalFest celebrates its 10th anniversary with Bicycles, Beer & Burgers

WICHITA, Kan. - Bicyclists from all over Kansas will descend on the Heartspring campus to celebrate the 10th annual PedalFest bike ride on Saturday, August 24. Records are being broken both with the number of registered riders (521 and counting) as well as, fundraising dollars, $42,496 and growing each day, leaving the goal of $35,000 in the dust. What this means in the long term is that more children will receive life-changing therapies from Heartspring Outpatient Pediatric Services as the dollars for financial aid continue to build.
