History of the Beach Ride - Jack Monroe started the "Ride-a-thon" 38 yeards ago. In 1981, when he started the event, he was encrouged by several riding clubs to start the Ride as a charity event because the City of Myrtle Beach wanted to ban riding horses on the beach. The first ride took place with around 20 Riders and has grown to over 2,000 participants a year. Unfortunately, Jack passed away last summer. We are so grateful to Jack for his outstanding leadership and dedicationto this event.
Throughout the past 38 years, this ride has grown to become the largest ride in South Carolina. This event has raided oalmost $6 milion in total to support reasearch and educational projectsby the American Hear Associaiton.
