Thank You!


Lots of you joined us at the Mt. Brighton Downhill Track and thanks to the support of YOU and D&D Bicycles, we were able to raise $1,328 to support youth mountain biking programs right here in Michigan! We have plans to invest heavily in our race infrastructure for the 2018 season and this will check a few wish list items off the list! We're already over $17,000 and it's possible we could raise $20,000 this year with the awesome assistance from our sponsors and supporters!

MiSCA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization hosting mountain bike events throughout Michigan for elementary, middle, and high school-aged students. We rely heavily on our Volunteers, Sponsors, and Donors to be able to provide the great programs we offer. If you can, please make a contribution today or sign up to volunteer!
