Our friend, gearhead, and fellow JC2NYC rider, John Fabula, will be riding this year’s Tour de Force NY for charity. Let’s help him along on his ride and put together a donation from JC2NYC. I’ll collect the cash, just let me know if you’d like to toss anything towards a good cause.
I have decided to participate in the Tour de Force NY this year and I have decided to dust off this blog and make it partly a training and fundraising diary.
“On 9/8/13 two hundred and fifty participants, will depart the Ground Zero and cycle through New York City, along Long Island’s coast, through Connecticut and into Rhode Island before finally landing at Boston’s 9/11 Memorial. Four days of cycling, 270 Miles, to commemorate the anniversary of the attacks on our great nation.”
I am proud to announce that I will be one of them!
The Tour de Force’s dual mission is to honor the victims of 9/11 by keeping their memory alive through cycling events and to raise funds, to benefit the families of police officers, who were killed in the line of duty, each year, nationwide, making the ultimate sacrifice. The Tour de Force is a registered 501©3 charity with the IRS.
I am the only member from my department participating in this ride this year so I am counting on the kindness and support of friends, family, and coworkers to sponsor me in my efforts.
