Annual Camphill cycling event benefits children, adults with special needs

CHESTER COUNTY Camphill communities in Chester County will host the sixth annual Camphill Challenge cycling event on Sunday, October 14. Camphill Special School, Camphill Village Kimberton Hills, and Camphill Soltane provide life sharing and educational opportunities for children, youth, and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

In just a few years the Challenge has grown from 12 cyclists to close to 400. The bike ride begins and ends at Kimberton Waldorf School in Kimberton and offers 50, 25, and 10 mile courses for all ages and ability levels as well as a family fun ride.

Cyclists will wind their ways through Chester County during peak autumn foliage with astounding views of horse farms, historic homes, and covered bridges. A picnic and music will round out the day.

Proceeds of the Camphill Challenge benefit the three Camphill communities in Chester County. For more information about the Camphill Challenge, to register for the ride, become a sponsor, or to set-up a personal or team fundraising page visit or contact Courtney Coffman at 610-469-9236 or
