Registration opens March 1!
As we head into the new year, we first want to thank you all again for your support of the 2018 Sacramento Century Challenge, where a whopping $100,000 was raised to benefit the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery Program. We could not have done it without you!
We hope you, your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues will join us for the 2019 Sacramento Century Challenge, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 5. The ride will include multiple routes suitable for people of all ages and activity levels, and proceeds will again benefit the Crisis Nursery Program.
RUOFS (Stands for: Ruland's Used Office Furniture Store)
RUOFS was rescued from Elk Grove Meats - who were about to throw him out. Steve Ruland brought him back to the 16th street store a little over 18 years ago.
Steve begins putting messages on RUOFS and in no time RUOFS became one of Sacramento's most recognized icons. RUOFS was once stolen by some college kids. When this happened, his theft became the lead story on all three network newscasts, and he was on the front page of the Sacramento Bee's Metro section. Because of all the publicity, the kids dropped him off a block from the store and called to tell us where he was.
If you head South on I-5 where the highway goes up level with the Sacramento River, just past Sutterville Road, you can see RUOFS's brother sitting on top of a house boat. RUOFS has been boating, sky diving, in many parades, and seen in various parts of the city for the last 18 years.
For a $200 donation that goes to the Sacramento Rotary Club Community Projects, you can have a side of beef for the day. You can have RUOFS say what you want and have him come to your home or place of business.
