Pedaling for PAASS

Thank you to alll of the sponsors, donors and participants of the 2017 Pedaling for PAASS.

Come celebrate the 20th anniversary of PAASS by joining eight of our PAASS Presenters for Pedaling for PAASS, a fundraiser for the ag aviation industry’s premier educational safety program. Pedaling for PAASS utilizes pedaling carts, controlled by an independent, professional driver that will direct pedaling participants throughout historic Savannah and perhaps a local imbibing establishment or two. The cart that raises the most money for NAAREF and PAASS wins! 

The event will begin on Sunday, December 3, 2017. The carts will be launched starting at 5:00 pm, with 15 minute intervals between each cart and will last about 2 hours. All you need to bring is a to-go cup for onboard beverage consumption, comfortable shoes, your photo ID, and a method of payment for your beverages at the local imbibing establishments. Tours start on the south side of the river and those details will be provided to riders who sign up.
The PAASS Presenters below will be leading peddle carts and they are looking for riders. Send an email to now to secure your spot on their cart, but you had better hurry – spaces are filling up quickly! The minimum donation for riding on one of the carts is $100. Beverages are not included with this donation. If you know who’s cart you want to be on, please let us know in your email. If you want to participate but don’t care which cart, we’ll pick a PAASS Presenter for you!
