Nosco Sherpa


What is a Nosco Sherpa

In honor of the 10th Annual Mike Nosco Ride, we are introducing the Nosco Sherpas. In an effort to raise more for the foundation and help ten donors through a challenging day on the Nosco Ride, ten outstanding athletes have donated their time, expertise, and ride to become Sherpas. Your sherpa is your personal domestique for the day: devoted draft, coach, cheerleader, water bottle getter, storyteller, motivator, pacer, flat fixer, and all-around bicycle advisor. The “Sherpas” recognize that the Nosco Ride is challenging but that the challenge of the ride on a single day pales in comparison to what others, notably the recipients of the MNF, go through every day. It’s an opportunity to embrace the challenge, recognize the gifts we have and the abilities we have, to give back, and to live in the present. Want a Sherpa? Register today and select “Nosco Sherpa” under the donation amount to receive your Sherpa support and full Nosco kit.
