Thank you for considering a donation to the Pumpkin Pedaler Bicycle Tour and our parent Foundation, stART COlumbus. stART Columbus, Inc. is an Ohio based non-profit corporation, founded to support autism awareness, education, and research. The Foundation is exempted under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and operates as a public charity. All donations to stART Columbus are used to fund autism advocacy and programs in Central Ohio – the foundation is run entirely on volunteer effort.

We would love to see you and your bicycle on October 22, but we understand not everyone is able to join us for the tour. If you are unable to participate, please consider making a donation in honor of your missing wheels. Although we have donation suggestions, please know than any donation helps, regardless of the amount.

  • Donors in Central Ohio can deposit cash or check directly to our account at any Heartland Bank branch. Make checks payable to the Pumpkin Pedaler.
