Annual Camphill cycling event benefits children and adults with special needs



Camphill communities in Chester County will host the sixth annual Camphill Challenge cycling event on Sunday, October 14.  Camphill Special School, Camphill Village Kimberton Hills, and Camphill Soltane provide life sharing and educational opportunities for children, youth, and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

In just a few years the Challenge has grown from 12 cyclists to more than 400. The bike ride begins and ends at Kimberton Waldorf School in Kimberton and offers 50, 25, and 10 mile courses for all ages and ability levels as well as a family fun ride to nearby Beaver Farm.

Cyclists will wind their ways through Chester County during peak autumn foliage with astounding views of farms, historic homes, and covered bridges. A picnic and music will round out the day. Registration before September 30 is just $30.00 and includes lunch and a T-shirt.  Children 10 and under are free. 

Proceeds of the Camphill Challenge benefit the three Camphill communities in Chester County.  For more information about the Camphill Challenge, to register for the ride, become a sponsor, or set-up a personal or team fundraising page visitwww.camphillchallenge.org or contact Courtney Coffman at 610.469.9236 or ccoffman@camphillspecialschool.org.
