From Casey Boy, WMMR Rock & Rollers, Team Captain:

Team WMMR Rock & Rollers started their journey with The Families Behind the Badge Children’s Foundation back in 2014.  This year will be our 10th year riding as a team.  I was new to cycling back in 2014… and I had NO idea how to captain a team.  That year we had 16 members and we raised $4450.  I learned that year about the cycling community and the comradery that exists on the day of the ride.

I was HOOKED.  More importantly, I was determined to grow our team and our team’s contribution to the cause.  One way, I thought, to attract more people to the team, was to offer them something for their efforts.  The next year, all team members received a WMMR t-shirt.  That sucked.  We needed something more.  I decided to design a team jersey for the 2016 ride…and that was the start of Team WMMR’s calling card.

It wasn’t until 2018 that our team jerseys started to make an impression on all of the people who ride in the Ben to the Shore.  That year, we designed a jersey that looked a lot like a white Philadelphia Eagles jersey.  I was so proud of that design!!  To date, that jersey is my favorite of all of our jerseys!!  I wanna give you a rundown of all of our jersey designs over the years, but first I want to acknowledge our partners that have made these team jerseys possible.

  • OG Supporters

    First and foremost, our team would not exist without Penn Distributors!  They are the ones who reached out to me in 2014 to see if we would be interested in forming a team.  I answered the call, and so have they, whether it was through Bud Light or Michelob Ultra.  They were our very first sponsor, and have aided us every year since.  Other partners who have been there from the start are The Headstrong Foundation.  They are having an amazing impact in the Delaware Valley and beyond!!

    Then I decided to reach out to a Delco Institution… Pinocchio’s Pizza in Media, PA.  Tim & Athena didn’t even blink before agreeing to help out our team in 2016…and every year since!!!

  • New Friends

    This year, we have 3 new sponsors…and we needed them desperately!  First, Visit Delco jumped on board to help with the cause.  Go to VisitDelcoPA.com to find the best places to eat, bike, run and hike!  They are an amazing resource for any and all indoor & outdoor activities in DELCO!!

    Next up is the Families Behind the Badge Children’s Foundation.  They have been supporting Camp Out for Hunger for YEARS, and now have taken quite an interest in our team (And our badass jerseys)

    Our final sponsor is Wilson’s Secret Sauce on Township Line in Upper Darby!  In addition to having the BEST BBQ Brisket in Delco, Steve (And Kelly) Wilson is one of the most generous and charitable people I have ever met. They helped put us over the ledge as far as fundraising is concerned.  These new team jerseys are AWESOME!!!

    We would not be able to gift our team members with the uniquely amazing jerseys without the help of all of these organizations/companies.  They, along with Team WMMR Rock & Rollers, made this all possible!!
