Founders Story

In 2012, several leaders from UnitedHealth Group began raising money for the Susan G Komen foundation as part of the Mother’s Day 5K walk/run in Minneapolis. As part of the fundraising effort, Jeff Meyerhofer recruited Dave Wichmann, Rob Webb, Kevin Knarr, and Mike Connly to “auction” off their time to participate in a 30 mile cycling ride within the Minneapolis area.  Ric Blanchard and Helmut Braun were the winners of the auction for a little over $1000. With the help of Dan Cohen, Jeff coordinated the 30-mile ride.

Given the competitive nature of this group, what started out as a 30-mile cycling ride became a 100-mile Century Ride to raise money for UHCCF. Over the course of the following weeks, each rider raised money using a make-shift website titled “Ride with the Leaders” and plotted the course.  In the end, the team raised $50,000 and rode a rain soaked, curb jumping, and unsupported course in the west metro of Minneapolis.  

Now deemed “The Original Eight”, these individuals have helped to pave the way for the UHCCF Century Ride which has grossed over $4.47M since inception. In addition, Century Ride is our anchor to the overall UHCCF Hope Ride Cycling Series which includes five cycling rides and one Fat Tire Bike event.

In 2021 the UHCCF Century Ride celebrated it's 10th Anniversary and raised over $1 Million dollars.
