2019 Journey for Autism Century Ride

ESG Operations and Central Georgia Autism will once again partner on Saturday, May 4, for the 7th Annual Journey for Autism Century Ride. Macon, Georgia, will host bicyclists from across the Southeast at Sandy Beach Park on Lake Tobesofkee beginning at 8:00 a.m. This event is designed for the whole family and includes food and bike giveaways donated by Bike Tech of Macon. Cyclists choose from four course routes—22 miles, 33 miles, 66 miles or 100 miles. Routes wind throughout the outskirts of Lake Tobesofkee, covering three Georgia counties.

All proceeds from this annual event benefit Central Georgia Autism’s scholarship program, workshops and family events. Central Georgia Autism scholarships provide any type of medical treatment, therapies, specialized camps and iPad communication for children diagnosed with autism. Funds raised each year through the Journey for Autism greatly impact families.

“We are very grateful for the impact this ride has made on many people with autism for the last seven years in Central Georgia. Our ride is possible because of our wonderful community partners such as ESG Operations, Inc., as well as our other sponsors each year. For the 7th annual bike ride, the logo symbolizes the journey of a family and child with autism, the winding turns, hills to climb, all to get to the finish. Thank you to the Middle Georgia community for the amazing support you have given us for the last seven years,” stated Janet Ward, Co- Founder of Central Georgia Autism.

ESG Senior Vice President and Partner, John Eddlemon, commented, “ESG is honored to be the presenting corporate sponsor for the 7th year in a row. This special event provides needed financial resources to central Georgia’s children who are on the autism spectrum. It is also an opportunity to bring together the biking community from all over the state of Georgia. We look forward to a safe and fun event on Saturday.”
