Harpoon Point to Point
The Harpoon Point to Point presented by National Life Group is a cycling fundraiser to benefit the Vermont Foodbank. Riders pledge to raise money for the Foodbank, enjoy a beautiful ride starting and ending at the Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, VT, and finish with hot showers, fresh beer, a BBQ and live music.
A collaborative effort by the Vermont Foodbank, the Harpoon Brewery and The Point Radio Network, this ride was established to raise awareness and funds for the Vermont Foodbank.
The Harpoon Point to Point is now the largest fundraiser for the Vermont Foodbank. To date, we’ve raised $906,250!
