Mary and Anna Youth Fund Process

When the EDRA committee put together the guidelines for the EDRA Anna & Mary Memorial Youth Fund at each critical decision we asked ourselves “what would Anna and Mary say or do?”  That made it easy to develop the most inclusive scholarship fund for youth 17 and under in PNER.  The intention of the fund is for riders 17 and under to ride free in PNER as long as EDRA can keep the fund solvent. Youth eligibility is NOT tied to membership in EDRA, AERC or PNER.  Because the vast majority of rides charge youth 50% of a full adult entry fee, the fund was set up to cover 50% of a full adult entry fee.  So most rides youth will be covered 100% and ride free.  If a ride charges youth more than 50% they will still have a greatly reduced entry fee. Please see the flyer for information on how to access these youth funds.
