We are so excited to announce the 41st Annual AHA Beach Ride will be November 2nd-6th, 2022! Last year, you all helped us do what we thought wasn’t possible and raised over $500,0000, setting a new Beach Ride record!! Please see below for important updates for the 2022 Beach Ride.
Registration and Campsite Info
Registration is now open for this year’s event. Price Breakdown for registration is below. Please note registering with the AHA DOES NOT guarantee a campsite. To request campsites, you must download the Lakewood Camping Resort App on your phone or Tablet, click on the AHA Heart Ride logo and then Campsite Preference Form. A Lakewood Rep. will contact you to confirm campsites in the order forms are received. If sites are not available, you will be placed on a waiting list. You DO NOT need to be registered with the AHA to request sites. You DO need to be registered with the AHA to pay for your sites, as you will asked for your Personal ID number at that time. The personal ID number can be found at the bottom of your emailed registration confirmation.
