By Wednesday expect to see a big influx of visitors to Bend for the 2010 National Cyclocross Championships. This is the second year that Bend has hosted the national championships and Visit Bend's Doug La Placa says the cycling officials have fallen in love with our area: "We have, as a community, have delivered national championship events to USA Cycling that have truly raised the bar of what they now expect from their host cities. As a community, we have gone above and beyond in delivering a quality event to USA Cycling. What really separates bend from the rest of the country in terms of host cities is the amount of enthusiasm and entertainment that we incorporate in to world class racing." La Placa says this year, the addition of a Cross Culture Arts Festival will make this years five day event extra special. He adds that last year, the event infused over a million dollars into the local economy and this years' event will be even bigger, with more competitors from every state in the nation. The Cyclocross runs Wednesday through Sunday in the Old Mill District.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
