ride with the 10th anniversary jersey

This stunning design, featuring the black rhino on front and back, commemorates "A Decade of Hope for the Orphans." It's available in women's and unisex cuts in popular sizes, and it will be in your packet if you raise at least $225 for the children.

And don't just ride with us, join us in our effort to reach our $75,000 goal.

If you've been watching the news, you know this money is needed more than ever. And with your help, we know we can reach our goal!

When you register, 10 percent of your registration fee goes directly to helping the children. After you register, you'll receive information on how to set up your fundraising page, simply and easily.

To ride with Team Zimbabwe, you will need to raise a minimum of $100. And to ride with the most sought-after jersey on the course, you'll need to raise at least $225.

That is easily done. But we're encouraging you to accept our challenge to go farther and higher. Be bold! Be a champion fundraiser, and help bring hope to the orphans!

But first, you have to register. Scroll down to next section to get started.

Registering is easy.

When you click "REGISTER NOW" at the bottom of this section, you'll be taken to the Elephant Rock registration page. It's all pretty self-explanatory, but below are some tips for filling out the online forms. If you have any questions, please contact Jackie at 720-289-2090 or at

First, on the registration page, scroll down and select the length of the course you wish to ride. Click the plus sign once to indicate you're registering for one person – yourself. Note that for each length of ride, there is a line to register an adult, and a separate line to register a person 18 or under – and that person can be registered for free when you register early!


Once you have selected your course, scroll to the bottom and click "register now." That will take you to the next page entitle "Buyer Information."


"Buyer Information" Section


At the top of this page you should see "Team Zimbabwe 2019." Please note you do NOT have to log in, just continue by filling in your Buyer Information. If you want to copy someone on your buyer information, you can fill in that part, or you can skip it and go on to the next part.


Be sure to fill in your date of birth, gender, phone, address, and emergency contact info.


"Event Questions" Section


Please note that all these questions are optional, except for the last one. Just before the "Initial to Agree" section, there is one final question you do have to answer.


"Initial to Agree" Section


Here, you will need to type your initials in several boxes to indicate you understand all the important issues and to sign the waiver. Then you'll have to check the box to acknowledge you have read and agree to the waiver.


"Attendee Items" Section


The first thing you'll see in this section is that you will have a packet you must pick up at the Douglas County Event Center on Saturday, June 1 or Sunday, June 2 before you ride. In your packet will be your bike number, which must be affixed to your bike, your wristband and an Elephant Rock commemorative item, along with any merchandise you order as you fill out this section.


***As you scroll down, you'll have the opportunity to purchase this year's Elephant Rock T-Shirt for $15. It is not required that you purchase the T-Shirt. You can skip this step if you like.


***You will also have the opportunity to purchase the Elephant Rock lunch. Again, this is not required. You can skip it. A free light lunch including a sandwich, beverage and more will be available at the Team Zimbabwe booth at the expo.


Any item you select to purchase will be added to your cart to be paid for at checkout.


"Attendee Insurance" Section


This is another option that is not required and can be skipped.


"Other Stuff" Section


Here, you'll have opportunities to purchase a lot of other Elephant Rock merchandise, starting with this year's Elephant Rock jersey. Note this is NOT the Team Zimbabwe jersey. You'll be able to secure your 10th Anniversary Team Zimbabwe jersey, which is even more amazing than last year, when you set up your Team Zimbabwe fundraising page.


If you're planning to camp at the fairgrounds for this event, please note that your camping pass can be ordered in this section.


Again, you may select and purchase any of the merchandise listed in this section if you want, but none of it is required to register.


You'll know you're finally getting to the end of the registration process when you come to the big ZMP logo and are given the option to donate $1 to the Zimbabwe Mission Partnership. Of course, we would love it if you select this option (and 100 percent of it will go to the kids) but it's not required.


"Order Summary" Section


Here's your chance to make sure that everything you selected is duly noted. Check it carefully, then click to submit your order.


When you have submitted your order, you will receive a confirmation email from Elephant Rock, and Team Zimbabwe will be notified of your registration.


What's Next?


Expect an email from Team Zimbabwe soon thereafter. We'll provide a link and explain how to set up your fundraising page. You'll have to raise a minimum of $100 to ride with the team, and a minimum of $225 if you want to ride with the 10th Anniversary Team Zimbabwe jersey. Believe it, there will be nothing else like it on the ride.


After you've reached your fundraising minimum, we hope you will go on to raise a LOT more! Each dollar grows more and more important as the situation becomes more desperate in Zimbabwe. Thank you in advance for your much needed help.
