The Great Ride

Update #1
The Great Ride

Register online today for the Great Ride (PDF [Portable Document Format File] ) on Saturday, Sept. 3. This year’s group motor cycle ride will last approximately two hours and will start and end at Galatyn Plaza. The event is open to anyone who would like to participate; just be sure to select UT Dallas during registration to help us earn team participation points. There is a minimum donation of $20 per rider, and $10 per passenger to benefit Special Olympics Texas. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to participants.

Opening Ceremony

This year, Comet Cruiser bus service will be available to and from the Opening Ceremony on Friday, August 12. The bus will depart the UT Dallas traffic circle at 5:15 p.m. for the event. Return service will depart from Galatyn Park in front of the Renaissance Hotel at 6:40, 7:20 and 8:00 p.m. RSVP to corporatechallenge@utdallas.edu if you plan to ride.

The Opening Ceremony and the Great Walk will begin at 5:30 p.m. Join us for a celebratory tailgate at the UT Dallas tent —tent #48; see map (PDF [Portable Document Format File] , 1.91MB)— meet our Special Olympian, Justin Hoover, and help our team earn participation points in the Great Walk. Food and refreshments will be provided, and family and friends are welcome.

This is also an opportunity for UT Dallas to earn participation points in the Great Walk. Anyone can participate in this event. We need at least 175 UT Dallas representatives to complete the short walk through the shaded Galatyn Woodland Preserve by 7:00 p.m. in order to earn the maximum of 30 points. The event is come-and-go, but if you would like to walk as a group, we will meet at the UT Dallas tent at 5:45 p.m. Just make sure you pick up a token at the start tent and drop it off at the mid-point check-in tent to earn points for the UT Dallas team.
