Where does my money go?

All net proceeds of Pedal Hilton Head Island benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island.

The Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island provides outstanding after-school, summer education and enrichment programs. Over 250 children and teens use the club daily, and for many of them, it serves as a point of stability and safety in their uncertain world.

Specifically, the club serves children from low-income families: 63% of Club Members (children) are from families living in poverty, 71% do not have health insurance, 54% live in single parent households and many do not have a home to call their own. By riding with us this September, you will enable the Club to continue to do impactful work for local children and teens.
