B.A.C.A.’s ® mission is to help children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. This is accomplished by providing group support for the child during a stressful time and then withdrawing once the crisis is over. B.A.C.A.® is a volunteer organization. It requires those interested in joining the B.A.C.A. ® organization participate as a Support member, that they pass an NCIC background check, be mentored by a patched B.A.C.A. ® member who will sponsor and guide them for not less than one year and that they attend required training’s during that time.

The five ME STRONG founding members along with the support of some special volunteers host a variety of events in Central Florida to support the ME STRONG mission. Through a grant process, ME STRONG offers assistance to cancer patients treading to stay financially afloat while undergoing cancer treatment. What sets ME STRONG apart from many other cancer charities is that it is not disease, age, or gender specific. ME STRONG supports Central Floridians with all types of cancer including men, women and children. Tim Cook, CEO of Florida Hospital DeLand, shared these words, “Cancer patients find support through ME STRONG that would not otherwise be available to them. Florida Hospital is blessed to partner with ME STRONG to care for the cancer patients of our community.” In addition to offering financial support to individuals, ME STRONG also funds a generous research grant to the Society of Gynecologic Oncology each year in support of finding a cure.
Please use the form below to nominate a person or organization to be considered to receive funds from future ride!
Eligibility: Only 501(c)3 Charities and nonprofit organizations are eligible to receive funds distributed to the top three levels for each ride. If your favorite organisation is not on the list of organizations to vote for, you can write them in under the “other” space. Please only do this if you know that they meet the eligibility requirements. If they do not, you can still nominate them for the “Little Engine that Could” cause and they will be considered for that portion of the proceeds. All organizations that finish first, second or third in the voting must provide proof of their status (IRS Form 990). In the event that an organization cannot provide the necessary proof, they will only receive the amount equal to the “Little Engine that Could” contribution. Any balance would be equally distributed between qualifying charities that are receiving funds. Read below for a detailed explanation of the distribution of funds. Once an organization receives funds, they must wait one year to be eligible again.
All money raised through this ride will be distributed in the following manner:
40% of the proceeds will be donated to the charity with the most votes.
30% of the proceeds will be donated to the charity with the second most votes.
20% of the proceeds will be donated to the charity with the third most votes.
10% of the proceeds will go to a charity (or cause) that may not get many votes but needs the help. This “Little Engine that Could” cause will be selected by the riders on the day of each event. This could be a small (relatively) unknown charity, a family in need in our community or even an individual who has fallen on hard times due to sickness or injury. “Little Engine that Could” recipient does not have to be an official charity or nonprofit organization, but will be screened before being considered as one of the organisations to be voted on by the riders. Organizations who are receiving funds in one of the top three categories will not be eligible in this category.
